Late in 2016, I cruised the quiet single track of Trail 38 in Mont-Sainte-Anne, against the coming darkness. It was my last ski of the year.

In the aftermath of the Election, I’ve struggled for words and motivation, wondered if all the effort I make in sport — or writing about it — is worth it, or if I need to start putting my efforts to something more substantial and meaningful.

But I haven’t stopped and that inertia alone may be its own payback as things evolve and hopefully not devolve over the coming months.

I finished up the road season in New Haven and Boston.

After 15 years away, I raced a nearly full cyclocross program, spending perhaps as much time on the ground as on the bike.

I got on snow early and have carried that bike racing fitness into the new season. Seventeen hours in 5 days at MSA has just add to that base.

Winter is coming.

Winter is here.
