Marlee Dixon’s True Grit Epic Race Blog 2015

Looking back on my first race of the season, The True Grit Epic, I am psyched for mountain biking and racing this year.   The True Grit Epic, a 50 mile or 100 mile mountain bike race set in St. George, Utah, is  a challenging course with a little bit of everything – from tough climbs to fast and flowy descents to some technical sections.  It’s an early season race and for some people it’s one of the first times of the year we’re back riding our bikes on dirt.  After road riding, trainer rides, spin classes, etc, this race will get you excited about mountain biking again.

Even though my race didn't go well I enjoyed being in the desert of southern Utah and riding dirt with friends

Coming from the snowy cold Rockies to camping with friends in the warm desert to racing awesome trails to hanging out with my feet up in some elevated legs at the awards ceremony in downtown Santa Clara, this race has it all- a great atmosphere and a fun challenging course.  I’m looking forward to racing it again.
