Death Valley Take-Aways
I rode in the middle of the pack, my usual and expected spot when riding with accomplished riders.
I’m not washed up, chronologically.
Vision Quest off-season training paid off handsomely.
I climb easily, not fast, but easily on long, 10-15 mile climbs of 4-11% grades.
The one night I was unable to fuel properly I had no fuel in the tank to ride more than 10 miles the next day confirming, again, nutrition is my biggest performance issue.
I gotta find a way to come back to Death Valley; it’s calling me.
