Way north to Whitehorse

The second half of the Tour took a turn for the better. You won’t recognize that on the result sheet though, those were still pretty bad. But my mindset was considerably better. Was I still frustrated that I felt and was racing so poorly? Absolutely. Was I racking my brain and agonizing over it? Nope.…

Let the training begin
