I’ve been on my own or with other teammates for the past few weeks. As of this morning, the whole CXC crew was back together and ripping around the Rendezvous Trails. It was a surprisingly typical day in West, getting woken up at 4:30am by the elk hunters next door (they came home this afternoon with a small cow), then waking up again at 7am for isometric strength. The trail was in good shape, although a little soft around the edges for pole plants. Tested some new skis and I’m into the new boards. Fish was out on the trail with his video camera and lactate analyzer, keeping us honest in our training.
There are surprisingly few skiers out on the trails. I saw a couple biathletes and some tourists, but for the most part, it was a typical CXC domination of the trails.
Don’t forget to check the West Yellowstone Ride Board. There is a ride coming up from Salt Lake on Saturday morning and Alye Bohn is looking for a ride from Bozeman on Sunday.
