There is a lot going on. This winter keeps flipping between arctic and balmy conditions. Our race calendar has adapted, and we have been able to pack in a pretty good season. In case you haven’t heard there is quite a bit left, and if you can you should hit the trail and join in. This winter will end eventually, so make the best of it while you can.
