Bummer race at the final C1 of the season. Sometimes your legs just don’t cooperate.
Onward and upwards to Nationals👊🏼

A lone in the woods.
My favorite place to process all my thoughts.

Being prepared for the start line begins at the team compound, prepping my bike for my warm up (head phones are very important🤣) and getting my start line necessities prepared. Minimize pre-race anxiety by being prepared and organized.

I was hoping to walk away from this weekend with fun vibes and those warm and fuzzy feelings inside. Instead the words “McFadden is going to McFade” are ringing through my ears. You brought me down, you tried to rip me apart, your words were hurtful, you mocked me and my name, my identity. I used your mockery to light my fire. We went 1, 2.
I’m happy I have a team that lifts each other up, that supports each other, that can make me smile and remind me why I love cyclocross.
Thank you @pivotmaxxis.

Start lines can be so nerve racking. I try to keep my nerves at bay by following the same routine for every line.
•1️⃣ Starts with a glance over my left shoulder.
•2️⃣ consumes 1 @clifbar energy gel + water.
•3️⃣ with 3 minutes to go my cozy @dnacycling zip off pants 👖 come off.
•4️⃣ with 2 minutes to go my thermal jacket comes off.
•5️⃣ with 1 minute to go I adjust my pedal and situate myself on my @sdgcomponents saddle.
•6️⃣ eyes ahead, visualize the start and listen (or look) for the whistle, the gun, or the green light.
•7️⃣ crush it.

Just because you can ride a section, doesn’t mean you should...🤦🏽♀️

Nice ride Courtenay! 4th place on the day.
Sunday was basically this. Me, all alone, for 4.5 laps. I just couldn’t match the pace of the top 3, and each time I thought maybe I could claw my way up to them, they would attack each other and a little piece of my soul died. Eventually I lost site of them with 2 to go and my mantra became “this is your race, focus on what’s ahead of you, not behind you”, and I rolled in for 4th (yet again🤦🏽♀️). I recently started working with @thek2 to work on the mental side of the sport, as it’s something I’ve never done. I’m learning the power of my mind, and it’s truly an amazing thing✊🏼.

🧐Remember how I said when I came back I would be a new athlete? I’m not as race fit as the rest, but I’m learning to keep my fight strong and literally leave everything on course those last laps. @bruce_buckley captured this perfectly on Sunday.
Canada 🇨🇦 bound today for another weekend of leaving it all on course!
