"Ginger-Snapped!"

Norpine Fat Bike Classic Race Report - ❄️Somewhere between the start of this race, riding the mashed potato snow and the flat tire just before the finish, this ginger had a fucking melt down. Yup, full on; toddler style. But this one included the word “fuck” about 100 times. Some loud yelling. Kicking the snow and then falling in it, stripping off my kit and more yelling. Then as I sat there feeling defeated I started laughing. THIS is why not everyone races fat bikes.
This race is a fun and hard race. But depending on the weather it can make it harder. And that’s why we do it. This race tested everyone physically and mentally.

After my “ginger-snap” session and my hours pleading with God I approach the last km of my race with my flat tire. I decided not to change it with less than a mile left as it was faster to run with it. #cxskills ....


Finally, I saw the finish line. I saw my friends, my coach and the race director. It was done. I made it. It was sunny and warm. And what was that?! There’s a kick ass after party? Well, sign me up. I’ll take two of those beers🍻 Castle Danger Brewery

I learned a lot from this race and it will go down as one of my hardest races and most proud finishes. I can’t wait for next year🙌🏻
