Racing is BACK!
It has been a very strange time for all athletes over the past few months sitting in limbo wondering when events would come back. Well, we are lucky here in WA to have returned to some semblance of normal life and part of that includes having races resume. Our first batch of non-virtual racing took place last week and we couldn't be any happier with all our athletes' results after the long hiatus.
When things took a turn for the worst in terms of racing and training (not allowed in groups, gym closures, etc.) we spoke with our athletes about setting some new goals. For some, that meant chasing a 10km PB, aiming to get a QOM on a long Strava segment, or increasing their FTP. It is a testament to our athletes that they were able to switch their focus and continue to train hard throughout uncertain times. I think the results speak for themselves and we can't wait to see what else the upcoming races have in store for everyone.
