Annie, Katherine and I flew to California only a couple of days after the end of the team camp to prepare the road season with the national team. Annie and I raced the San Dimas stage race on the first weekend while Katherine was getting some good training in with the group of juniors. The San Dimas stage race started with a hill climb on the Friday, followed by a road race on Saturday and a criterium on Sunday. It was a good way to start the season and see where our form was.
The week after the race was to do some very high intensity work on the bike to get ready for the season. It was a very hard and challenging week but I feel confident ahead of this long road season in front of us. I also had a really nice Dairy Queen birthday cake for my 20th birthday! Thank you to all the sweet teeth in the team!
I am now back home and looking forward for a well deserve rest before getting back on the bike to prepare Calabogie. I am very excited for the first team race of the season!
