The weekend: RACING! Pre-ride Saturday, Race day Sunday
It won’t help your performance at the races to work too hard this week so we will ride just for fun!
Pre-riding the course is one of the easy things that will help your performance in a race a lot. When you pre-ride, don’t climb the hills hard. Take it easy on the uphills, get an idea of what gear you will need at each spot, do the downhills fast enough to get an idea of what it will be like at race pace but DON’T risk crashing. You will gain the most pre-ride knowledge on the downhills and transitions. There is little to learn from hammering up a long hill but you might tire your muscles out before the race.
Also if you pre-ride while chatting with friends and team mates the whole time, you won’t get the full benefit. Try to do at least one lap while concentrating.

P.S. I will be driving to Temecula Saturday leaving around noon and will have room for one person and one extra bike if the transportation is needed. I’ll be returning immediately after the awards ceremony.
