I am inherently competitive. So when Strava tells me that I have the 50th fastest time out of a 1,000 for this year on the Chutes Down Hill section of the trail I take it upon myself to improve as much as I possible can. My Goal? Top 10. I’m coming for you Jon Cancellier, whoever you are! Today is December 12th and I have until February 2nd to make it. Only thing slowing me down? Massive amounts of snow and ice that seems to be accumulating on the trails right now as it is currently snowing!
As a side note, trail conditions were still pretty gnarly with patches of snow and slush on many of the sections when I made my time, so dropping 22 seconds isn’t THAT ridiculous. Only slightly. Here is to improving conditions, a little bit of luck, and a lot of practice.
