Off-season racing fun got rolling a week ago Saturday at the Dawn to Dusk mountain bike race hosted by DCB Adventures on the Pemberton Trail at McDowell Mountain Park just outside Fountain Hills. I jumped on the co-ed quad team Cancer Sucks with George, Jo, and Todd for this great event. I headed up early Friday afternoon to pre-ride the course as I haven't ridden the Pemberton Trail in years and luckily was able to grab a great parking spot. Turned out this was pretty sweet as the parking lot filled to capacity Friday night and all latecomers had to park down the road and get shuttled in. Not ideal considering the rain started falling and temperatures plummeted during the night. We were smart and got a good nights sleep at the Holiday Inn!!!

Since then it has been nose to the grindstone getting in some great training especially on the bike. Spend this past Sunday out on the 24hr course for the first time and pretty excited about the race in February. Trail is in great shape and super fun.
This is probably it for the year as far as blogging goes so Happy Holidays and wishing everyone a terrific 2012!!
