Wow, is it really December? Guess time flies when you are having fun! Dark Horse Racing had another stellar year with podium finishes, fun team rides, race clinics and cosponsoring the Tree Farm Relay to help raise money for our local trails we love to ride.
Thanks to all of our great sponsors and friends for a fabulous race season! And my first new year's resolution is more timely blogging in 2013! Happy Trails!

New for this year, we decided to put together a race workshop for beginner women. We held the workshop at Stony Creek the day before the XC race, and found that we all had a lot of advice for our students regarding training, nutrition, and race strategy. We then set out for a pre-lap of the course, where our students practiced passing techniques and learned various tips and tricks for successful racing. Lunch was provided by Tailwind Racing, who also offered the students a discounted rate for the XC race. The workshop was a great success, and we are looking at making it an annual event.
