With the start of the season just a week away, we knew that this meeting and ride had to happen. The weather was not in our favor and the girls knew that driving home would be a long and treacherous drive, but that did not stop them from coming. The Elite girls are dedicated and committed to Team EPS/CSS p/b Shebell & Shebell so the morning went as planned. The morning started with planning out the Elite Race Calendar, race goals, and personal goals. Everyone contributed and all worked collaboratively to put a solid calendar together for the season. We are excited to get out there and work together as a team. Immediately after the meeting we headed down to Teresa's basement for a nice group ride on the computrainers. With the snow coming down pretty hard we knew that riding outside was out of the question. The computrainers allowed us to ride together while staying warm and dry. We had a great ride pushing each other until the very end.
After our group ride the team enjoyed some Chili that Teresa made from a special mix packet that our teammate Audrey sent from Utah. It was delicious! Everyone made it home safely despite the poor road conditions.
