Congrats to Danielle Musto on winning the Lumberjack 100. A mountain bike race that covers 100 miles. Just to do a 100 mile bike ride is a big accomplishment in my books, but to do it over gnarly mountain bike trails in the summer heat takes it up the difficulty notch.
To win is another story. Lots of time and dedication and LOT of hard work.
Danielle has been a finisher 10 years in a row, one of only two people to accomplish this feat. The Lumberjack is held in the Manistee National Forest. It attracts some of the top riders in the Midwest.
Aside from riding her bike a ton, doing long miles, doing tempo's, intervals and recovery rides, she works hard at the weights and gets stronger every year preparing her body to take the abuse of the long races.
Next big race on the docket is a big one, 24 HOUR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Scotland.
Congratulations for consistency and excellence!
