Family Seal S2:E1 Changing times
Life during the COVID pandemic as seen from an athlete's and team's perspective. Payson and Hannah experienced 12 months of solo training with no racing. It was a time to reflect, grow, develop, and pursue solo adventures which has not traditionally been possible to do and still meet sponsor requirements. We kept the family bond strong with social distancing protocols and modern technology….social media, zoom conferences and telephone calls. Join us as we recount the last 12 months of life.
Family Seal - Triumph at The Mid South
Looking back on it, we never expected The Mid South to be one of the last races "for a while." This makes it all the more meaningful that Payson and Hannah were able to persevere through some of the toughest conditions ever served up by the roads of Stillwater Oklahoma and take the top step of the podium for pro men and women. We're proud of the efforts they made in the preparation and on race day, and celebrate their spirit of toughness as we hunker down and ride out the COVID-19 storm. We'll come back to racing as soon as we can, and until then we'll keep chronicling the adventures of team riders Payson McElveen, Hannah Finchamp, Kye Cordes, and Dennis Van Winden as they navigate the strange new landscape of training for an uncertain season during social isolation.
