2018 Valley of the Sun Stage RaceChris Sproule
The first official race on my racing schedule this year was the Valley of the Sun Stage Race in Phoenix, Arizona. With the arrival of my new Carbonbike four days before the first race, I wasn’t able to get much time getting the bike fit quite right and race ready. With my last race being in November, it felt like it had been a while since my last race and it was. I had a solid weekend and continued to improve over the three-day event. As my body came out of proverbial racing hibernation, things started coming together towards the end of the weekend and I was able to find the podium in the criterium. It was a solid start to the season with areas of improvement identified and a goal to peak when it matters the most. I’m excited for what should be an amazing racing season with Team PossAbilities!
