Another racer on track! Pua gets 7th in her first World Cup!

Pua gets 7th at the MTB World Cup Marathon #1, at Manavgat, Antalya, Turkey, March 16th against the best mtb riders from all over Europe! Sometimes we view the US as the hot bed of things. When you race the world, you realize the world is a very big place! 

You might think that 17.44 mins. behind the leader is a lot. But it really is not!  
It is not that easy! You must learn "major lessons" about travel, jet lag and nutrition when you travel the globe to race World Cup races. A few more experiences for Pua and she could be right there because anyone that places 7th in their first World Cup is a contender!

"I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday, and I love today." - William White

Most races are only say 40k, or 4 to 5 hours long. Now, think 12 hours or 24 hours!

If your bike is not part of you, your body will quickly tell you so in the next 48 hours.
