Abgby is much more confident on her bike now, two serious crashes (one ER pediatrician / ER visit and new helmet) have made her a bit shy on the downhill sections, but we can work through that.

If anyone is considering NICA, I recommend it 100%.

My daughter has gone from falling over every time she meets a hill to passing the boys on the double track and complaining about their constant slowdowns on the single track.

As a group we would stop just about every 1/4 mile to rest and water the athletes and turning back after 2 miles. Now we're making multiple loops and exploring the trails and turning back because practice is over.

Looking at one month until our first race!
