Subaru Cup Pro XCT

A very exciting weekend at the Subaru Cup Pro XCT in Mt Morris, Wisconsin.  This was the rebirth of a national pro level mtb event in the Midwest for the first time since 2002 when a NORBA National XC was last held at Alpine Valley in East Troy, WI.  The racing was intense all weekend along with the best fans that you could ask for.  They cheered or rang cowbells no matter if we were suffering up the switchback climbs or descending through the spectator packed Firelane section of the course where it was at the noise level of a World Cup race according to the top pro's.  Thanks to Don Edberg and WORS for a great event that we all hope returns year after year!  My results were nothing to write home about, but as the weekend went on I started feeling better on the bike and the fun returned by the Super D event.   When you race with the best you need to step up to the plate and give 110% for every pedal stroke that you take if you are able.  For the upcoming races I feel that my results are only going to get better with being healthier and back on a regular training schedule.  Next up the WORS  Chippewa Valley Firecracker XC in Eau Claire.  Pedal on...
