It was definitely a confidence boosting ride. If I can squeeze in a couple of long rides next week, I'll be feeling really good and might not suffer too bad at the race.

I'm ok with it though. I have sacrificed a lot of my ride time doing other things I love. Spending time with family being at the top of that list. I had a bikepacking trip planned 2 times this winter, but they were postponed. One due to butt cold weather, the other due to sickness in the family.
Early this winter I set a goal to have fun on the bike. I rode the rollers 2 times, and decided never to do that again. I don't enjoy it. I don't have the drive to and commitment to endure that boredom anymore. I just want to have fun and ride my bike. I also determined to do some long rides. I've checked Stoney Fork off my list, but I want a rematch. I have a new gravel weapon, it rolls fast.
But first the Stage Race. I'm going to go my "race pace" on day one and then see where I land. If I'm in the competition, I'll continue racing. If not, I'll enjoy the ride.

I finally figured out the perfect multi day loop in the area. I have packed up and gotten ready to go twice, only to be thwarted by life, one time was freezing temps, the other time was the sick family... Just waiting for that ol' window of opportunity to open for me!
