Last week I attended a National Nordic Foundation meeting along with many other athletes that rely on the NNF to train and compete. It was a great overview of the NNF and where the money was spent. The NNF was a huge help this past season and I can't thank everyone enough for their donations. We will continue to raise money through the NNF to help support the National team as well as development teams.
I am also excited to tell you that I will be representing the sunglasses and bike helmet company, Rudy Project during the 2013-14 season as well as 2014-15 season! Many of my teammates use their product and I am looking forward to using their amazing products in the upcoming years. Thanks Rudy Project!!!
On Saturday, some of the team will be doing the Sugarhouse criterium road race down in Salt Lake City. For those of you who don't know what a criterium is, I will explain the best I can. It is a mass start with a group of 20-50 riders. The course is usually very short and technical. We will race around a loop (1kilometer) for about 30 minutes and when the time is up, the officials will ring a bell signaling that it is the last lap . We then go around the course one more time and whoever crosses the line first wins. The race is high speed but extremely fun. I will be joined by coach Dave Jarrett and teammate Adam Loomis.
The beginning of the summer has been amazing and I will continue to keep you updated!
Hope everyone is having a great summer!
