On July 7th, Yohsuke and I had an awesome time racing Gnar Weasels (Bubba Trophy Series) in the Ascutney trails of Vermont- a very popular race series. Trails consisted of lots of switchback, rocky climbs and fun, fast descents. It was a strong field of women, so after losing one spot on the last lap, I was happy to still finish 10th/Pro. Yohsuke had a big field and raced his way to 15th.

2017 was my first hilly, muddy, snowy ride at Rasputitsa in East Burke, VT. I remember vividly how spent I was when I finished. But, like all good sufferfests, I registered for 2018 within a week of finishing my first event. Not only does the race provide a great venue at Burke Mountain ski area, but the surrounding roads are terrific.
