Big Bear Shootout was my second mt bike race that i have competed in. It was a fun day with lots of hills : ) It was part of the conquer the bear series which also includes the big bear multisport race, paddle race and marathon. The course had super fun singletrack with lots of sand. These races have some super strong ladies competing and it was fun seeing them attack the mountain. I raced in cat. 2 and came out in 4th place. I really need to work on my sprinting legs... fun day and perfect weather!
