For the 10th year in a row UCI wins the Parker Cup. We are blessed to be back racing on our home course with picture perfect conditions. Thank you to all the friends, family, and alumni who made it out cheer our eaters on!
Watching this group race yesterday you could feel the excitement to be back racing other universities. However, this group is focused on the endurance of the racing season and is ready to get back to work to continue to get faster. Our next test will be the California Challenge Cup, Saturday March 5th.
Today marks the 16th anniversary of the passing of my dear friend Dylan Ayres. While this day always brings the feelings of sorrow. I find myself blessed to be able to open the boathouse doors every morning to see Dylan waiting there for me to get to work.
I'm not sure if its by my subconscious boatings or if its Dylan giving me a nudge but the Dylan Shell always attracts the jokesters in the group. Yesterday the guys were a bit nervous before launching and Master Student Alex Wearn tells the guys to go "monkey brain" a term they have coined to not overthinking things and to go out there and just have fun / be in the moment.
