Vail Lake Campout

One of our favorite traditions is our Vail Lake pre-ride and campout. This fun weekend gives us a chance to see the race course at Vail Lake (sight of our first race) and to have fun camping out and enjoying great meals and friends.

This year Coach Marshall started the weekend off with a great lesson on how to BREATH. Yes, there is a right way an a wrong way to breath. We rode the Vail Lake course for a couple of hours, and then got down to some serious eating - CHILI!

On Sunday morning we awoke to below-freezing temperatures. (28 degrees). Everything was frosted and our 7:30am ride start time didn't seem like such a good idea. After warming up by the fire, most of the guys went out for some more laps. Later that morning we had a great breakfast and then we packed up and headed home.

Thanks parents and coaches for supporting the team and helping make this another fantastic weekend!
