The Canadian Cross Country National Team ended their three week training camp in Park City, Utah on Sunday September 28th with a high volume week.
A 7 hour long bike ride and a 6 hour hike were on the agenda for those who did the longest option on both long days.
Each individual decided how long they wanted to make these days and a few of the guys did the entire bike ride. They started in Evanston, Wyoming, went up a big 2+ hour climb to Bald MountainÂ on Mirror Lake Highway, and then back down the other side to the camp headquarters in Deer Valley/Park City, Utah. A nice (but) tough ride.
Fasterskier.com joined the team for hill-bounding/ski striding intervals w/poles near the Mountain Dell reservoir on Saturday. Two to four minute long intervals were on the agenda, at hard to very hard efforts.
