DON'T MESS WITH MY TAN LINE.
In a group, be sure to hold your line.
Single track is all about picking a good line.
Winning a sprint often means getting your team in line.
This past Saturday a bunch of my friends put their seasons on the line. For months they rose before the sun and rode a 100+ miles every Saturday so they could have their best day ever at LoToJa - the 200 mile race from Logan UT to Jackson Hole WY.
For many, this was their only race of the year.
An entire year of prep. For one day. Like traveling to Everest and hoping the weather is favorable when you get there.
It wasn't just the saddle time. There were serious food choices made. Weights lifted. Equipment... oh the equipment... purchased, maintained and finely tuned. Support crews coordinated along the route. Travel to Logan. Hotels. It's an never-ending, exhausting list.
All so you can put it on the line,
and see what you can do when you put your mind to it.
... how'd they do? Podiums and smiles all around.
