Feeling strong and fast coming out of an amazing offseason, Miranda Miller was looking forward to a full season of putting her hard work to the test—like every other EWS racer.
But in the past few weeks, the global health crisis that is COVID-19 has forced a lot of change. Cancelled races are far from the most important issue facing us these days, with overloaded medical systems, economic crisis, and with social distancing measures and other mandates coming from governments and health authorities every day.
At this point, it’s hard to know what’s going to happen next, how long it will take for this pandemic to play out, or how many people will be affected and to what degree.
Miranda is lucky enough to live somewhere that she can access trails in a safe way that doesn’t impact others, and with much of the race season cancelled, she’s adjusted her approach to riding to suit these difficult times. For Miranda, there’s little to do but take life day by day, adapt as she goes, and take joy in appreciating what we still can.
Marc My Word is a classic Squamish trail, slowly and awkwardly winding its way through insane boulders and rock faces. Seriously, look at the rocks. They're huge!
