Today I pre-rode the bike course for the Xterra Las Vegas race on Sunday to familiarize myself with the terrain. Its quite the Xterra type course, there are a few steep hills that you have to walk, also some rough patches that I did not expect on the downhills and I have the scrapes to prove it! So my plan for the race, since I'm a better climber than a downhiller right now, is to climb fast and hard, then go easy on the descents. 2 days till race day!
I also had a photo shoot with photo editor of Triathlete magazine Nils Nilsen to go with the interview I did with them for the July off-road issue. Nils is a cool and fun guy to work with. I enjoyed doing this photo shoot.
