The 2014 racing season has come to an end and that can only mean one thing, time to relax and have some fun! I have to admit, I got caught up in striving for results this season and it wound up landing me in the hospital. It was a tough lesson to learn, but when you ride or race relaxed you perform better.
I had high hopes for this past enduro season, but I wound up missing several big races that I had planned on participating in. It wasn’t fun missing those events but that’s how it goes some times. Now that I’ve had time to recover, and just go out and ride for fun, I’m getting really psyched for 2015!
I live and train on some pretty flat terrain near Atlantic City, NJ so I have to drive an hour+ to get to some trail systems that have elevation. Thanks to Brice Shirbach, I'm getting familiar with the trails in Brandywine, DE. These trails run along the Brandywine Creek and probably max out at 400ft at the highest elevation. These trails offer a wide variety of trail types from typical east coast rock gardens to flowy contour trails and open field farm roads.
We're fortunate to have some really nice trail systems nestled in pockets here in the Mid-Atlantic region all within short driving distance. To keep up to date on enduro events and info along the East Coast, please visit www.eastcoastenduro.com.
