I just completed the California State MTB championships in Big Bear, CA with an unexpected and solid result! I ended up with a podium 3rd place in CAT II 25-29! This was a challenging XC course, with extended fireroad climbs and excellent forest singletrack, with some solid competitors in my category. What was such a great surprise to me was that this race was definitely a C priority at the end of a tough VO2 max block at the end of Week 7 of the CAT I build/peak/race plan. It is very exciting to start to gather these podium finishes to eventually attain my Cat I upgrade goal!
Thanks for a great training plan so far, Coach Lynda!
