Saturday was a spectacular day for mountain biking in the Wasatch. Particulary, Sundance Ski Resort in Provo Canyon. That was the scene of ICUP XC race 6 directed by Ed Chauner and sponsored by my team, Mad Dog Cycles.
After a week of fatigue, little training, a heavy work schedule and a lot of self doubt, Saturday came together for me and I felt great. I'm still missing the snap I'm looking for, but I wasn't tired and did not make any wrong turns. And, Dwight Hibdon and Bill Dark both joined me on the podium for a Mad Dog podium sweep. OK, there were only 4 of us in our group, and Dwight beat me by 4 minutes, but Bill beat the 4th place guy by 12 minutes.
The team did real well with lots of podium finishers and no injuries. I'm writting this after the fact, and can't remember anything else, so that's it. It's time to go for a ride.
