I actually like this photo. What I like is how "racey" we look. You can easily tell that Montoya is all business, and I am letting her do her job with as little interference as possible. I love how far she is reaching with the left front and how far back she has that left hind stretched. When it comes forward we're going to cover a lot of ground!
I've shared before that technical trail brought out the best in my partner. The Eastern High Sierra Classic 50-miler has some very technical and dicey trail. Montoya shone at this type of work. It kept her brain engaged and she thrived on the challenges the trail gave her.
We finished this race 34th out of 67 riders. Our ride time was 8 hours and 14 minutes.
