BaseCamper and coached athlete Amy Fowler shared her experience at the 2023 Trans-Sylvania Gravel Epic in the Bald Eagle State Forest in Pennsylvania, where she earned first place in her division in the first stage.
The first day wasn't bad, despite the endless climbs, the washed out roads, and the leg cramps. Lots of rain and wind that night made for cool temps and fast gravel on the second day. I didn't make the top step today, but did hold on to yellow. Time to rest and eat and eat and eat. Thanks to BaseCamp and to Coach Tina Hart for getting me ready for this adventure!
