After many years away and minimal 'training' I finished the 2008 riding season with several races under by belt. I rode with the expert class during the xc and masters for the cx. Both disciplines were tons of fun even though I needed to relearn how to race again. Racing isn't riding, it's tougher! I forgot how to suffer and work through the different mental and physical challenges during a race. I saw some old friends and met some new ones and I can't wait until 2009.
I plan on training with more discipline and loosing some much needed weight (15 or so). This really won't start for some time so until then Happy Holidays.
