In planning for my third time at Nationals, I decided to arrive a week before race day in order to have time for some on-snow training, and to acclimate to the high altitude. The journey started with a cross-country road trip that included visiting friends, battling a snowstorm, and setting sights on the Rockies.
I rode at Breckenridge the day after arriving in Colorado, and spent time working on conditioning through some trees and moguls. The conditions were bluebird and gorgeous (and cold) and I posted an edit of my runs on my Vimeo page:

We spent the time stretching, eating Jb's incredible lasagna, and prepping gear with sights set on the podium.
