Parents, coaches and riders coming togther to build communication and training opportunities for Juniors! Enjoy the ride recap shared by Douglas Toback, a parent of a 12 year old Junior Racer.
And we’re off …..
What an awesome day – far exceeded what was planned.
First off – this happened because of our team coaches and parents! Commitment! We had parents coming in from everywhere to make this happen – we had someone drive from PA, they came by Van, from the end of Long Island –
Everyone pitched in – Coach Dave (Star Track) drove the support car, Nolan (Cuevas) rode with the group, Maura made the apre ride sandwiches …. Diana got DJ and me out of the house!
Then there are our junior riders!! The came ready to go –
The first wave of the areas best – State and National champs – cross discipline – with one goal – riding to smile – meeting each other and getting ready to make this a killer year. And it clicked- all our kids, our riders, our racers were talking, laughing and working together. The day was balmy and sunny – I was thinking about wearing shorts
Everyone came ready to go
… umm everyone came ready to go-
We started off in a perfect paceline – textbook
ok – maybe not right out of the gate but we got there –
The older kids got close to 40 miles in – the younger groups were close to 30. There were some strong pulls – with the kids working together and dragging me along. The most notable moment was that old MTB guy who got a top 10 on a Strava segment
Overall just an amazing day – New Friendships, New Beginnings, Lots of Smiles and FAST Riding!
