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.

Here I am.
Race went crappy, about 15 miles in I had my first crash of the day, and my rear deraileur wrapped around my cassette backwards. I have no Idea how, but that ended my race.

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.

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.

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!

Ahh, the old "go out hard and blow-up" routine. I've done that too many times. It's a fine line of going out fast but not too fast. I've found if I'm a couple behind the lead, it puts me in a good position to keep up without blowing up.

Here's one of me a couple of weeks ago during a muddy mess of a race:

I swear most categories start at the exact same speed. I'm pretty sure my first few minutes were almost as fast when I was a sport as they are now as a semi. The only difference is now all my competition just doesn't slow down

Ouch! That'll do it too!

My race last weekend, there was an accident at the start. I heard tires rubbing looked over and a guy went down. I guess he sprained his wrist so he didn't get up and go. At least you finished!
