From Bend > Iceland > LeadBoat and beyond, we are in it now!
We are off! Well, we have been off for a while now, which is why I am just now getting around to a recap of racing and adventure. This season has rolled by faster than my little bike across the line and here we are, about to enter September already!
So far the bus has driven over 4,000 miles to races, events and adventures since May, and there is even more fun to come. The bus has been such a great way to connect with fellow racers, followers, fans and newcomers. It's really fun to watch people taking photos of it and throwing a peace sign from their cars as we drive by.

A Few Extra Fun Bits
Between riding, training, coaching and racing we had some fun with a few projects along the way! From bike checks with Specialized and Sram to riding in the cold 'how to's' with Hydroflask and all of the podcasts, we've stayed busy...and chatty!
