Vamos a Salt Lake City

I’m done with finals (Organic Chemistry was tough on monday) and now I’m headed to Salt Lake City to spend time with my family during the holiday break from school. My training goal for the break is to get some good volume in while racing. There will be a few citizen races which I’ll be entering to get some good hard efforts in, but on the whole it is a training break (meaning that I’m going to try to train as much as possible while I’ve got free time and free meals at home) :-)

Hope everybody is enjoying their December so far,


About Gus

My full name is Gustavo, though I go by Gus. I was a member of the UNR NCAA Ski Team from 2008-2010 and a founder of the UNR Winter Sports Club. I have been a Far West Farm Team member for 2 seasons so far and am looking forward to my third year. I’m working my way toward being a ski coach and english teacher, while still trying to be as fast as I can be. I love mountains and canyons and rivers. My favorite place to be outside of skiing is in the Grand Canyon, though I don’t get to go there as much as I’d like. I’ve started a collaborative project called #summitsunday this year.
