Summer Race Updates

Lex Albrecht, professional road cyclist. Team TIBCO Silicon Valley Bank
After a 5th place finish at the Canadian National Championships, Lex Albrecht raced the Women's Tour in Czech Republic, followed by the UCI Women's World Tour event, La Course at the Tour de France in Pau.  Lex returned to Québec, Canada for a training block in the Eastern Townships region to prepare for the next events of the season.

"I had my hopes set a little higher for the National Championships but I let the weather and choice of equipment stop me from riding as technically savy as I wanted at the very end.  Beyond that, Nationals is always a bit of a funny race since it's the one event of the year where each team has a different number of riders (some are solo compositions, some have a plethora of racers, and others have a few...).  I always find a way to love it for the funny beast it is!  The most important thing was feeling that the form was fully there. 

Getting back across the pond for the first time in 10 months was also good for me individually.  It takes a race to shake out the European cobwebs.  Racing to support Brodie Chapman, my Australian teammate was an honour and a thrill.   Having my first solid training block at home is now exactly what I need, and I'm looking forward to the next events of the season already."

Bike selfie. I do this sometimes to see what my face looks like when I feel this happy. Just to check. Lol. #AdventureSeeker #senabluetooth #girlswhoride #motorcyclelife #motorcyclehelmets

I MADE MY OWN #HORCHATA! And I made it with maple syrup from Québec. And it's DELICIOUS. And I think it could win the #maplesyrup recipe challenge! Please give it a vote by clicking the link in my bio! (The video showing how to make the recipe - 4 ingredients and a few minutes - is on my YouTube channel and the latest blog on www.lexalbrecht.com). THANKS FOR VOTING FOR MY CANADIAN HORCHATA! #erable #erableduquebec #érable maplesyruprecipes #veganrecipes #horchatarecipe #homemadehorchata #vitamixrecipe
New quarantine reflex: stock up on the good stuff. @eightouncecoffee has a whole bunch of #thirdwavecoffee roasters' products available online right now. Pretty fun to shop for them all in one place! Current stock: @detourcoffee, and pulling shots with the #Leverpresso. #CAFN8me #coffee #coffeebeans #thirdwavecoffee #espresso #leverpressocoffee #portablecoffeemaker #manualespresso #manualespressomachine #detourcoffee #detourroasters #th3rdwave
I was on my bike and this girl was playing her violin at the riverside. I like to think she was enjoying doing her thing, as much as I was enjoying doing mine. #fromwhereiride #cyclinglife #cyclistlife #ruralroads #riverside #violin #violinist #violinistsofinstagram #musicinnature #springtime
New battery day. I love that I can change my @4iiiicom's battery myself, that it takes the same size as my kitchen scale and my bathroom scale, and that the trusty dolla store sells them. Easy to find, easy to do. That leaves efforts for other stuff! #4iiii #4iiiipowermeter #4iiiiprecision #4iiiipodiiiium #4iiiicom #4iiiiambassador #4iiiinnovations #4iiii_powermeter #cyclistsofinstagram #cyclist #cyclinggirl #powermeter #powermetertraining #poweredby4iiii
I am a gently-hit-two-birds-with-one-stone kinda girl. For example, I almost always do something while brushing my teeth, and I also try to pick my mid-ride pee-break spots wisely : where there's something interesting to look at, that I might otherwise never get to see. Like this stuff. #aglife #cyclistlife #rurallife #farmlife #quebec #canada #fromwhereiride #fromwhereimictate
Good thing I had some #homegym tools on hand other than exercise bands (those darn things keep snapping like there's no tomorrow). I like my #workout tools like I like my strength and stability for riding and running: SOLID. #elasticbandproblems #cyclistlife #homegym #coreworkout #corestrength #corestrengthening #corestrengthtraining #corestrengtheningexercises
Socially distanced group riding formation. (Le Roi du Parc et sa blonde ont le droit aux selfies rapprochés.) I love riding my BIKE. I love riding my bike in great places even more. I love riding my bike in great places, with great people even more than that! #livingthedream #rideconnected #adventureseeker #senar1 #senabluetooth #fromwhereIride #Garneau
I ran out of prepared meals on the weekend. It was a mess. No, I was a mess, on the couch post-training, waiting for the lunch fairy to show up. She didn't. The freezer is stocked again. Problem solved. #cyclistproblems #cyclistsolutions #athletelife #mealprep #mealprepideas #mealprepping #inmyfreezer #freezermeals #freezerstash #freezercooking #freezerfriendly
