Lola's story: Dirty Mitten and a successful season

BaseCamper Lola Faleix shared her win at the 2023 Dirty Mitten gravel bike race and photos from other events this season.

I want to say thank you to all the Base Camp coaches, especially Kate Johnson. I just raced my final race of the 2023 season this past Saturday and was the second overall women at the Dirty Mitten. This was the first time I made overall podium, so this was a big first for me, and I know it's because all of the training I did with BaseCamp. I had a fun and very successful 2023 season and learned so much along the way. Thank you, Kate, I couldn't have done it without you.
