Thanks @fietser. I think you nailed it on the head. I agree, I don’t like leaving a place feeling that I’ve rushed through it. Whenever you get to hang out with locals it makes the trip that much more memorable.
Having said that ……… the camaraderie you get at enduros I’ve raced thus far have been off the chart
So here’s a question for ya:…[Read more]
I’ve been asked to do the Quebec Single Track Experience with a friend who is resistant to race. So we may just do this “experience” self-guided. That way we can enjoy the ride, perhaps session a few sections, rest when needed and then take in the action at Worlds in Mount Saint Anne.

What I am doing this off-season is getting my nutrition dialed.
