The fourth stop this season on the XTERRA Pro tour at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, Alabama was another huge W for the Specialized/AVIA squad. I was so happy to turn last week around and join Conrad on the top step of the podium. After a week of regrouping, relaxing and rebalancing I brought a much fresher set of legs to the race and won it with a strong swim, bike and run combination. Nothing super flashy (although my swim was the best this season) but no leg of the race was weak. Shonny Vanlandingham ran down Renata Bucher for second while Christine Jeffrey and Emma Garrard claimed the last two spots on the podium.
Conrad and I had a great chat after Santa Cruz at a team dinner….
