Summer Vacation is over, now it’s time to return to racing!! Team PossAbilities heats up the competition at the August Piru TT! By: Jenna Rollman

After enjoying a wonderful vacation in July exploring the natural beauty of Mammoth Mountain and North Lake Tahoe it was time to transition back into a competitive mindset and resume a more structured training regimen for the remainder of the summer. I hadn’t raced at all since the conclusion of the Paracycling National Championships in Georgia so my coach and I thought it would be a good idea to gauge my current fitness by going out to the Piru [...]
