IMUSA Tri-Rally, Day 1: Race Rehearsal

150 150 Rich Strauss

Over 40 campers met in the parking lot of High Peaks Cyclery to conduct a race rehearsal ride on the IMUSA course, armed with Rich’s instructions and the Four Keys guidance from the night before. Rich instructed everyone to ignore everyone, especially in the first 8 miles to the Keene downhill, and ride their ride, just as they would on race day. Rich then started last, drilled it towards the front of the field, making observations and taking mental notes for his talk that evening. It was very instructive to witness the different riding styles and discipline on the course.
