The Wildflower Rush in Crested Butte CO is a race I look forward to all year long. It’s a super fun loop, hard climbs, and fast, fun descents. I use this as a prep to other races in season, but consider it an A race. This race will take me just under three hours with about 5500ft of climbing and 30 miles. Last year I was 5th place in Expert/Cat 1 for my age category. I hope to get on the podium this year.
In this weeks prepration, I’m entering a rest week. I just completed three weeks of a Build 2. My last ride was on Saturday at the Winter Park Hill Climb,which was then end of a four day block. I got out yesterday for some Zone 4 Hill Repeats, and then a hard loop with more hills in zone 4. I was feeling pretty good, since I was well rested from last week and the weekend race I was raining lightly and made the trails both sticky and slippery. The wet roots made the downhills a little more challenging, but I stayed up right .
