"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard...is what makes it great." I didn't quite have the result I would've liked at MNCX state championships this weekend. A rough start near the beginning of lap one left me chasing hard to try to reconnect with the lead group. I ended up battling for third but burned too many matches early on and gave up the lead in the last lap, resulting in a fourth place finish. I had hoped for a second chance on day two, but apart from one other racer and myself no other ladies chose to race in the 1/2/3s on Sunday. So I ended up chasing some guys around instead. 🤷🏼♀️It was a solid workout, but not really what I expected from a community with such a vibrant cyclocross scene. Fortunately, this past weekend isn't the end of my season. I will be heading down to Oklahoma in a few weeks for Ruts n' Guts to finish out my season with a couple of elite races. Whatever happens, I'm hungrier than ever and determined to fight! The 'hard' is what makes 'cross great! Bonus points for naming the movie, character, and/or actor I referenced at the beginning. 😉#sanfordsports #sanfordpower #zippspeedweaponry #luvmysnsbike #livbrava #p44racing #stokeishigh #crossisboss #ridelikehell #racelikeagirl #ferdagirls #kämpfermädchen
was pretty epic. Jen and Sam had amazing rides in the UCI races, Marilyn rocked her second-ever weekend of UCI racing, Evan podiumed in the Cat 2 race, and Coach Gamm pulled off a 2nd place finish in the 35+ men’s field. So many good watts!! #makegoodwatts #redkitefam
Bell lap. Head down. Chaser is right there. Your first outing as 🇨🇦U23 Champ. UCI C2 win at stake. Grind it out. Go for glory.
Sometimes writing about an experience helps to process it better. I left Supercross feeling battered by more than just the mud. But reflection is helpful, and I'm grateful for the race, the awesome people that were there, and the experience overall!

Just when I think it’s impossible for my little baby boy to look any cuter the vet sticks a cone on him, which he desperately wants us to remove by giving me this look!! 😢😂 10 days boy, 10 whole days of banging into stuff 😂😂😂🤷🏼♀️#instapup #puppies #mybabyboy #crossisboss

Turns out I’m not the biggest chopper in cyclocross, he tried running it the next lap and managed to deck it in front of me again 🤷🏻♂️😂

What. A. Season. -
Just like that another @cyclocrosscrusade
in the books. Another awesome year of racing and a big win for me that goes far beyond the results. As many of you know I dealt with a serious overtraining bout last year that trickled into this year. I wasn’t sure if I would race again, but slowly the fire started to burn again. Learning to be at peace with the “new” me was a challenge and required letting go of the past and what I used to be able to do. The past two weeks I finally felt like my old racing self again. Thank you for all your cheers, sweet notes, and warm welcomes back to racing. Thank you to my team and sponsors for believing in me and making this season happen. And the biggest ups to my #1 @timberstandimprovement
for being a supportive partner and always having dinner waiting after the long Sunday drives 😘Freaking ❤️ this community!! But it’s not over yet!

World Championships taking place near his home, Danish professional road rider @herrmortensen
has decided to prove his stamina in the mud over the next coming months. He chose to upgrade his Cannondale SuperX with @ceramicspeed
bearings and our tubeless ready Scope R4d wheelset to do so. No excuse.
