The Mutual of Enumclaw Stage Race was the last race of the Tour of Washington series, and the women’s team made it a goal to move Holly up to 2nd place in the overall points GC. I was excited to host the team at my house and take them on some Olympia roads the day prior to the race. It was a nice way to spin out the legs after experiencing the worst I-5 traffic on a Friday afternoon.

It’s 5:45 am in Wenatchee, Washington. I’m sure that somewhere people are waking to the sight of dew glistening on grass in the warm early morning sun of late spring accompanied by the sounds of peaceful birdsong. We, however, are awoken quite abruptly by a chorus of flipping tires, grunts, and death metal.
This weekend the team went to the Tour de Bloom in Wenatchee, Washington. The islanders got picked up from the 7am ferry and the road trip started from there. It was not long before we were stopped and outside of our vehicle at the border. The nexus cards this time didn’t help us save time because a few of the cards were inactivated. An hour later we were back in the van headed to the apple capitol of the world!
The 2019 Tour of Walla Walla would be the first test for Trek Red Truck Racing after an epic week of training down in Thousand Oaks, California the week before. The drive in to town the day before racing would provide a preview of things to come over the weekend, as the weather shifted back and forth between bright sunshine and torrential rain every few minutes.
After a few busy weeks with Team camp, Walla Walla, and Junior Track Nationals, sickness and school work had taken over some of the women’s team. A small TRT women’s crew took to the line of Jeremy’s Roubaix on Saturday to battle it out on the Dykes of Pitt Meadows.
After an incredible week of riding with our sponsors in the mountains and along the beautiful coast surrounding Thousand Oaks California at team camp, the race team was prepped and excited for the first stage race since the early season trek to Redlands Bicycle Classic.
