    Iditarod Trail Invitational

    Ausilia looks to be the only woman cyclist in the race this year. Follow her blog or the race site.

    Here's a google translate version of her blogpost, apologies if it misses any Italian subtleties...

    And as always happens to me before starting an "important" in the last few hours that precede it, it takes me great distress ... is the moment of parting, the farewell to Dad, the rest of the family and close friends, of 'last cuddle my beloved Cenerina and the rest of the tribe .... it's time to leave a situation that I have under control, secure and predictable for a completely new ...... I know for sure, as has always happened in the past, that my anxiety will fade away as soon as I'll look out the window at the runway away ......
    When I go back to write on these pages will be on the other side of the world, light and free from my fears.

    A video Ausilia and Sebastiano made about the Iditarod Trail Invitational. In Italian, but there's no mistaking the beautiful scenery and the difficulty of the conditions.

    I have to give a lot of props to people who do this kind of race. I can't imagine it for myself, but enjoy following the people who do! Thanks for the video!
