Hey @sofithevilla, I don’t think you’ll need that straw hat in Indy this weekend.
With predicted temps in the low 40s/upper 30s, and the potential for ❄️ on Sunday, the team has traded their summer gear for winter beanies and leg warmers.
🤔 can anyone accurately predict tire choice and PSI for the weekend?
What a fun and wild weekend. After weather A.D.D. brought every condition you could think of on Saturday (rain, snow, hail, sleet, and sunshine) Courtenay finished 6th in some fun slippery conditions, hoping to save a little for Sunday. Turns out a little reservation on Saturday paid off, as Sunday at Pan Ams, @courtenaymcfadden fought her way to a 4th place finish.
|S T A T S|
Tires: @maxxisbike prototype at 16/17 PSI.
Tires: #AllTerrane front and rear 18/19 PSI.
Thanks for the fantastic weekend @silvergoosecx.

Sunday was basically this👆🏼. Me, all alone, for 4.5 laps. I just couldn’t match the pace of the top 3, and each time I thought maybe I could claw my way up to them, they would attack each other and a little piece of my soul died. Eventually I lost site of them with 2 to go and my mantra became “this is your race, focus on what’s ahead of you, not behind you”, and I rolled in for 4th (yet again🤦🏽♀️). I recently started working with @thek2 to work on the mental side of the sport, as it’s something I’ve never done. I’m learning the power of my mind, and it’s truly an amazing thing✊🏼.
It’s not dirt, but I’d argue cruising over the Colorado National Monument is one of the best rides you can do during desert season. Even better when the traffic is minimal and you get to ride alongside herds of bighorn sheep and beneath swooping eagles. #lovewhereyoulive#pivotvault
What’s in store for the weekend? Mud. Definitely mud.
@courtenaymcfadden will be the sole representative (with the help of @desherick and @jer_alix) of the team this weekend as @jameydriscoll is sick at home and @sofithevilla is racing her mountain bike at Ice Man.
💻You can catch the action live Sunday on @cxmagazine as Courtenay battles at Pan Ams.

🌨 @cincycx delivered the mud on day 1! The team had a strong showing throughout the weekend, kept the mechanics busy, and had some good fun while they were at it.
Day 1 stats:
@sofithevilla 4th, 14.5/15.5PSI.
@courtenaymcfadden 5th, 16/17PSI.
@jameydriscoll 9th, 17/19 PSI.
**entire team on mud prototype tires.
Day 2 stats:
Sofia: DNF, 17/18 PSI
Courtenay: 8th, 18/19 PSI
Jamey: 5th, 18/20PSI
**everyone rode the @maxxisbike mullet on Sunday, #allterrane front and #speedterrane rear.
It rained, it hailed, the thunder and lightning 🌩 came and they pulled us just short of two laps. I guess for my first cross race of the year I got a little of everything. Thanks to @teamfingerdm for the support and encouragement. Looking forward to getting back out there.
It wasn’t the top of the podium, but @cincycx day #1 was a win in my books. I slipped, crashed, and pedaled my way into 5th for my 2nd UCI race of the year. Thanks to those who believe in me to conquer my dreams and goals. It’s been quite the journey. #pivotmaxxiscx . 📸 @bruce_buckley. .

I had such a fun time racing locally this October, something I rarely do during the CX season. It was made even more special by racing courses I haven’t raced in 6+ years. Last weekend I raced a course I haven’t been to since 2012, when a mysterious ghost 👻 in the trees tore my skinsuit open 😆.
It’s time to get back to my regularly scheduled UCI season at @cincycx this weekend, and I CANNOT wait!
Double weekend at @sherbrookecx! 8th both days. Legs were just not there on Saturday so I went full teammate for @marcan_f who delivered with two podiums! I was feeling a lot better on Sunday but a mechanical left me fighting from far back! Special mention to @gunnar_holmgren who crushed everyone both days! Feels good to be back racing! #pivotcycles_ote#pivotvault#crossishere 📸 @mathieucharruau
When the leaves change and the temps drop, we know that means CX is in store for the weekends.
1️⃣ Catch @jameydriscoll at the iconic @gpgloucester this weekend. 📸 @lcn_pdx
2️⃣ find @sofithevilla in Boulder, CO @usopenofcyclecross where ❄️ is in the forecast! 📸 @mcmahon_meg

Congrats to @jameydriscoll on scoring the teams first win of the season today at @charmcitycx C2. 🍻to many more!

Fun fact about @jameydriscoll, his average heart rate for the Waterloo World Cup was 154bpm. There’s a reason his nickname is “the diesel”! He finished 26th on Sunday, 4th American, and is looking to improve on that this weekend in Iowa.
Don’t forget to cheer loudly for Jamey and the rest of the team, they’re 🙏🏻 for mud!
