Sunday April 2nd:
Race at Folsom, CA in the last TBF race of the season---OR--- Team workout at West Keystone Trailhead at the end of Leadership Way off North McCarran Blvd. The trailhead is at the end of the pavement, ride starts at 3:30 PM and goes to 5:30. PLEASE bring HR monitors as part of the workout will be a heart rate test up a climb. You MUST know how to put on the monitor, have it recognize heart rate, and know how to start, stop, and reset it. Also must know how to check avg HR at the top of the test climb. Please, Please, Please do not expect coaches to show you or your athlete how to use the monitor on site as we won't have time. Please practice daily before hand. If racing in Folsom I will need your average HR from the race. Clear your monitor and restart with 1 min before race start and make sure to stop it and check avg HR when you cross the finish.

Note that on the previous schedule we had the Susanville CA, Riding High at the Ranch race listed on May 20th. They confirmed this date a few months ago via email but have now changed the race to May 27th (Memorial weekend). Quite frustrating... So we will plan to focus on the NV City Race on May 20th as a team event. We will not be planning on taking the trailer up for the Susanville race as many of us have made other plans for that holiday weekend. I encourage each of you that can to race the Susanville race to do so as it is a good course...
Sea Otter: Lodging should be set by now. Registration fees increase on Monday April 3rd from $55 to $75. Please be prepared if planning to race as the courses are longer this year with the junior race at 19.2 miles.
Pro XCT Utah: Website is below. This event should have a great junior turnout as many of the Utah and Colorado teams will be present. Races take place on both Saturday and Sunday and include a XC race, short track race, and skills competition. Registration includes all events. I can assist in determining which category to race if needed. If planning to attend I recommend lots of practice with trackstands, riding boards, and being able to hop around on the bike.
