Virtual Road Apple RallyFarmington, NM • Oct 11 2020 https://www.fmtn.org/277/Road-Ap…
This event required that you ride the true Road Apple Rally race course over a two week period. Thus you were racing the 30 mile course without other competitors racing with you. Also there were fun riders out on the course that caused some issues. This year due to the lack of rain the course was very soft with more deep sand than I remember. Unfortunately the day I selected to ride the wind was howling and there seemed to be a headwind no matter which way the course turned!

Working hard and keeping a good pace was really hard for me. I have done the race a few times but don't have the course memorized so I did have to slow down at junctions and make sure I was headed the right way. But everyday on a mountain bike is a great day!
