Here’s a recent communicae’ from Missoula’s Megan Fisher.
I’ve been at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs for the past week with the US Team preparing for Para Road Worlds. It’s been an intense week of training.
Even though Missoula is located at a lofty 3,600 ft above sea level, the lack of air here at 7,000 ft is noticeable. Today we had a long ride around the Air Force Academy. It’s a beautiful campus tucked into the hills, and I’m pretty sure we climbed everyone one of those hills!
We’ve been making a habit of climbing hills and mountains on our bikes. The course at the Para Road Worlds contains a steep section that will likely determine the winners from the losers. Our coach wants us to be prepared to work hard when the going gets tough.
We leave here in one week for the small town of Baie Cameau in eastern Quebec, a quaint town located on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. There’s no question we’ll be back at sea level, probably drowning in oxygen.
Wish me luck!
C’mon, Missoula. Let’s root for Alpine’s Megan Fisher in this next US Para event!
