Yea he took 10th that week it looks like, thats very fast considering Seth Whealing was there (XTERRA US + UK National champ, Finished '06 ranked #1) and he took 12th. This week is the Final race I will try to take some more shots as the course will be different.
Me in my second club race. I took 32secs of my best time to come 4th in under 19s, and 5th overall.
so how rough was that race? I was told people still cant walk from it.
It was pretty crazy. It was like 75% really bumpy singletrack. There were like 3 miles of fire roads at the beginning of each lap, then it was pure singletrack. Not good for me because I dont have the best technical skills. Lots of steep sandy climbs too. On the WORS forum there is an elevation map, and its nuts.
oooh I have to go next year. im the opposit as you, im the best in single track but blow big time in the double. people pass me like im not even moving!
sounded fun though
First annual Super D race on Moose Mountain took place this weekend. Despite getting two flats at the same time right at the top of the pre-ride (and not being able to ride it before the race), I managed to take third place in my class.
Salsa, you cut your hair, now I actually believe you are a male!
Beaver Meadows collegiate race, mens A, short track. hurt so goooooood....
Thanks guys...I can't complain about the result considering I didn't feel I rode very well.
I got the flats over a wider section covered with loose, sharp rock (imagine a cheese grater if you bailed)...and it's very fast, probably 60km/h+. And it wasn't only two flats...another guy I ride with was right behind me...he's about the same height/weight and was also riding a 6" bike...we BOTH got double flats in the same spot! It was a little scary trying to stop from that speed with the flats!
Super-D yesterday at Mt. Spokane. What a fun way to end the season. Nothing super-technical on this trail - - just a nice, flowy bunch of singletrack that went (mostly) down. About three short climbs to keep us heavy-bike guys honest and test our legs and lungs.
I managed first in the 50+ Expert and my friends Arnold Mukai and Terry Dickey took second and third. Good times!
The whole course was silty powder - -good thing we had 1:00 intervals for the start.
Me and my trusty Gran Mal in the background . . . dunno why I had that sour expression; I was havin' fun all day!
Podium: Arnold, me and Terry. The old farts rule!
