I had planned to do the Breck 68 this weekend, July 18. I changed my mind because I wanted more competition then racing against 15 guys, which was last years 40-49 field. I thought this year there would be even less with the XC Nationals the same day in Sol Vista.
Instead, I signed up for the Solvista Nationals, in Sol Vista, CO. I’m racing the Cat 1, 40-49 XC race. With my form starting to come around, I hoping for a good showing.
I haven’t ridden over there yet so I’m planning a pre-ride on Tuesday or Wednesday this week with Jon, a fellow teammate, friend and neighbor. Jon is racing the Cat 2 on Friday, and Super-D on Sunday.
The course looks like a typical ski-resort course, up then down. See course below. It doesn’t necessarly fit me, however, it is a 9 mile loop with three loops. The distance should suit me me.
