Stage Racing…So much more – Nye’s Blog

imageSome might think racing 1 hard race a weekend is challenging but doing 4 difficult races in 3 days at the Chico Stage Race is so much harder.   image

What made the Chico Stage Race so challenging was racing the Thunderhill Circuit Race, Paskenta Hills Road Race, River Road Time Trail and Steve Harrison Memorial Criterium in 3 consecutive days.  imageYou have to eat and drink enough before, during and after each race to keep your body performing.  Mental and Physical recovery is essential.  If you have a physically tough race one day you need to know your body and get the rest you need to recover.   Keeping a positive state of mind and knowing what you can do to improve the next day is important if you have a mentality bad race.    image

Racing at the Chico Stage Race was a fun learning experience and a great help for my fitness this season.image
