This past weekend, Team Jeni's competed in the Stony Creek mountain bike race on the edge of Detroit.
Mighty rider Patrice Lehocky (second from right, above) wrote this report on her blog:
"We had a 3-women 12hr relay team, coed 12hr relay team, and 2-man 6hr relay team. The course was fast and fun, smooth single track, wide bridges, super fast gravel, quick hills. I accidentally got off track on the first lap and did almost 16 miles instead of the 10.5 or so, but it was a fun lap and I finished it in 1:33. The next two were much harder than I would have ever anticipated, I definitely didn't intake enough (barely any) calories in the 2 off-hours between laps. My next laps (10.5 miles) came in at 1:16 and 1:12. Yeesh."
Patrice, may we suggest eating some of the ice cream you took to the race to share among all the racers? We can't think of anything better to replenish your energy stores.
