I can't describe how excited I am that race season is finally starting. Although there's no DH races for another month or so, I am just as happy to get out on the trails for some 'just for fun' cross country races. Last weekend myself, Cheryl Moore and Alex Dove as well team manager/cheering squad D'Arcy O'Connor trekked out to Mission for the first in a new series put on by the FVMBA of 6 races that span the season. There are XC, Super D, and All mountain races in the 6 and an overall points winner, as well as a special category for those who are using one bike (and fork) to race all six races.

I'm going to try to make it out to all of the races if I can, and will be racing all of the races on my 2011 Rocky Mountain Element with a 120 mm fox fork. If there was ever a 'bike to rule them all' for XC and AM I'd have to say that this is definitely it.

The first XC race was a super fun greasy course with a healthy dose of climbing though Heritage Park. I was happy to come a respectable 4th place in the Open Women category and am looking forward to working on my climbing and fitness a bit more in the next few weeks. Best parts of the day were definitely a tie between the final steep loose descent in the race, and the Swiss Chalet chicken feast that we partook in after.


  1. XC races... Agony as a hobby. :P It was fun though. Can't wait 'til the next post-race Swissch.

  2. Wish I coulda come!! Last place is fun.
