Pre-Daylight Savings Camp

Last week I went to to Boise, ID to visit some former teammates who are coaching the Bogus Basin Nordic Team http://bogusbasinnordicteam.com/. Wyatt, a product of BBNT, came with me to visit his parents who are from Boise. We tried to make the most of being a low altitude for the week and fit in a bunch of speed work. The whole trip was a lot of fun, Boise is the most bike friendly city I’ve ever been to and has a very welcoming nordic community.

I do have to report that on each leg of the drive Wyatt ate or drank something he found in a gas station parking lot.

Of course on the drive back we looked for a sweet #summitsunday, but we thought this sunset along one of many flat stretches of road was fitting

In addition to some quality low elevation speed sessions, I learned about Ice Blocking (which though surprisingly simple is a lot of fun).

About Spencer Eusden

Spencer returns to the Elite Team for his second year. Orignially from Maine, and a graduate of Bowdoin College, Spencer was part of the inaugural summer college program and returned to California after graduation. Last year he put in a big volume push and looks to build of off that results-wise this year. Top results from last year were 2nd place at The Great Ski Race, 11th Aspen SuperTour, 22nd Boulder Mountain Tour, and 21st in the SuperTour Finals Prologue.
