BC Bike Race Day 0

So here I am in Vancouver, and BC Bike Race starts tomorrow. Today we rode part of the Day 1 course, and there was some pretty gnarly stuff. There was a long climb and a long, technical downhill with lots of roots, rocks, drops and tight corners. Definitely one of the more technical courses I’ve ever ridden. There will be some carnage there for sure… Overall, the stage will be short- I think it’s only 29k, and everyone will probably be all antsy in their pantsy. I’m a little nervous, I don’t really have any idea how to pace myself for a race this long, but I am excited too. We are going to be staying in an RV, so I don’t know how much internet access I’ll have, but I’ll try to update when I can.


Do you have a question you're dying to have answered about racing, training or food and cooking? Send it to me and I'll try to answer it on my blog.
