Mountain biking race (BT Epic) 7:15:00 [4] 50.4 mi (7.0 mph) +5118ft
ahr:155 max:171 rhr:45 slept:6.0 shoes: Trek SuperFly

SO MUCH BETTER than last year. Like almost an hour and a half better. I've spent a lot of time on my mountain bike this year and have more bike miles since June than in pretty much any past year, so my conditioning was better and that showed on uphills. Still pretty slow, but I was able to keep riding more than in the past. I really need to work on descending and on riding switchbacks and anything remotely technical.

I stayed very focused on eating and drinking, and I think that was the biggest difference in my performance. I never felt great, but I never felt awful, just pretty steady. Zero mechanicals, no crashes. 6:56 moving time, so there was some room for improvement in efficiency, but overall I was quick at the aid stations and limited on-trail stoppage. Lost Chuck before Brazil, but I had a great time on my own. Very good day. That said, next year I'd really like a finish time that started with a 6.

I've been feeling crappy the past few days, and a smarter person would have stayed home. But then I wouldn't have realized this morning that I apparently backed my Superfly into a tree (not just my bike rack, like I'd previously thought) and bent my rear wheel. Jeff had brought it in and put it away for me, so I hadn't even seen it since last Sun. Anyway, last-minute bike switch meant riding the hardtail for the first time since Aug. Didn't feel particularly strong or confident but ended up with several PRs.

Brazil up W to Berryman to OT to gravel to Bass, then rode the last race loop. Started feeling sick again towards the end of final loop, so I rode gravel back from Bass instead of singletrack. Didn't get to ride new Berryman reroutes finished yesterday, so I guess I'll see that for the first time next weekend.
