So where does that put me? I got an invitation to join Team Noah Foundation, and I accepted. My interests in mountain biking have been gravitating towards the endurance side of things for a while now, and I don't just mean the 3hr marathon class offered at most local races. I mean the 12hr solo class at Burnin, the 56-mile BT Epic, and the 100-mile NUE series. The Team Noah riders are specialists in these distances, and I know I am going to learn so much from them. But besides the biking, Team Noah Foundation represents a very important cause: the support of infants and children with congenital heart defects, and their families. Noah and his family battled this condition for 10 weeks in 2011 and did not survive. I'll be racing my first NUE series race (hence the title of this post!) at Fool's Gold 100 with the Team Noah peeps and I'm super stoked!
