Time to race

Besides being  personal trainer, I am also a professional mountain bike racer for ProAir.  Beginning on Thursday March 8th, I will be competing down in Guatemala in the El Reto del Quetzal 4-day Stage Race.
This is a race I have wanted to do for a while and am going to make it happen this season.  I will be competing with Nelson Snyder (Hood River) in an attempt to gain fitness and get the climbing legs ready for the heart of the season.  Considering the fact that we have had a descent winter as far as temperatures and lack of snow, the mountain trails have still been limited and haven't been able to log too many miles on singletrack.   It will be very interesting to see how my mtb skills will handle the rugged terrain of Guatemala.  For a short peak at Stage 2 of the race, see the video below.

I will have a helmet camera going during the race, so I will be posting some clips of my own on this site and over on my cycling Blog.

To all my clients, continue working hard, and I will see you next week.
