I hope everyone had a great weekend (I'm assuming some of you are happy right now and some of you never want to hear the name *Patriots* ever again, but I think either way we can all agree that the half-time show was pretty great!)
With one indoor race under our belt and one to go, we are in a great position to be racer ready for Nationals this spring. As the blizzard hits Evanston and we refuse to leave our beds to enter the snowglobe, remember that the workouts we do today and tomorrow are setting the foundation for us to be ready for the spring!
With that being said, of course we have to have a little fun along the way to forget about the 2 feet of snow that now covers campus, so get ready for our exciting Valen-tri-nes event coming up (See the details below)!
On February 14th, individuals that have not raced yet, but are interested in competing at Nationals are heading to Bradley to take part in the last indoor race of the season. If you are interested in racing and have not been in contact with Jason please reach out to him immediately. The race distances will be structured the same as Dayton and will take place on Sunday morning, the 15th.
2. Mid-Year Reports - ASAP
If you have not filled out the mid-year reports, please do so ASAP! All responses will be completely anonymous so please be as open and honest as possible. Please take your time and fill this out. We really want to know how we are doing, both good and bad.
3. Purdue Draft Legal Race/Clinic Sign Up - ASAP
If you are interested in doing Nationals, we highly recommend that you do this race on April 11th and 12th as a way to "get your feet wet" and get comfortable on your bike before Nationals. If you have any questions about the race, feel free to email myself or Jason. (Note: It is not required for Nationals.)
