Bike Camp (2018)

by Dominic Miller and Roise McSorley
Dominic:
Having just recently bought the first road bike I’d ever owned, and it being my first year on the triathlon team I was pretty pumped for Bike Camp, and it did not disappoint in any aspect. It was a fantastic weekend of biking and running in the desert all while getting closer to an amazing team.

You wouldn’t think that deserts would be nice places to exercise but Anza Borrego State Park was a great location for bike camp. Shortly after I arrived Saturday afternoon the team planned a run/hike up onto a steep ridge near the campsite which provided a spectacular view of the landscape we would be cycling the next day. I stared in awe at the rocky peaks and steep canyons around the campsite and the gently rolling hills stretching for miles in the other direction.

Coveskipper (2018)

by Monica Thrukal and Josh Weimer
Monica:

I had been looking forward to racing at Coveskipper for a few weeks. I was mainly excited because not only would I get to race with my new team mates, but also with my friends from USC who were driving down that morning for the race as well.

As a new member of UCSD triathlon, I got to observe what it takes to put on a race behind the scenes for the first time.
