The Pisgah Stage race is a 5 day timed stage race in the Pisgah National Forest. Pisgah has some of the most extreme, steep, technical, gnarly demanding singletrack in the country, oh, and it's in a rainforest. It's no joke, the climbing is brutally steep and you get zero rest on the descents that are equally as hard. You can't lose focus for a second, or you may end up like one of the teams that raced, walking your mountain bike out of the forest in two pieces!
Life is a river, a beginning, an end, and a million different ways in-between. I was fortunate enough to add another bend in my river this winter with an internship at TotalCyclist for part two of the 2019 Winter Series. As a student at UNC Charlotte within the Exercise Science department, my final semester before my Exercise Physiology licensure requires a 340-hour internship of my choosing. With my passion of cycling mixed with a love of physiology, TotalCyclist was a perfect fit.
