    Race Results.

    I did the "GSC #8 Georgia State Championship series " race today. I raced the Junior XC ages 15-18 class.
    2 laps around a 7.3 mile long trail. It was a nice, smooth fast flowing xc trail. It was mostly hard pack with a little bit of sandy areas. Some good Climbs, that made you earn the decents. I kept my fork almost locked out. (I found this sweet spot where the fork only goes down so much and then it stops) It took care of the occasional root or small drop, but on the inclimbs and flats it allowed my to cruise!

    Perfect day for a race, it got pretty hot, and it's even hotter now, but it was fun. I did the first GSC race and the last lol.
    ok, to cut the small talk.

    My competition was pretty good. They're were 4 of us. the other 3 actually race seriously, the one kid is supposely 1st place in the series for the class. They were all decked out with sponsors stuff. They had the Kenda Youth Racing team jerseys.

    Anyway, I came in 3rd place.
    The leader finished in 69 minutes, which was crusing. He was extreamly fast.
    The second place came in at 70-something
    I came in at 84 minutes.
    the other racer who is also in the championship came in at 96 minutes.



    I dont have any pictures though. My family didn't come and no friends wanted to. When the results are up, I'll post the link and my number.

    When my camera charges I can take a pictures of my medal and like that to prove lol.

    Nicely done, Cheeto. Sounds like you had fun and that's the main thing, IMO.

    Just keep checking e-bay and, once you get to Germany, the local bike ads, you'll get lucky.

    For some reason Nicolai owners get bored real quick and sell their old ones so they can buy......another Nicolai

    Anyhoo, that means there can be some amazing bargains if you're patient and don't mind a slightly used bike.

    Rock on, dude!! Congratulations.

    I just did our Sunflower State Games again this year...I've taken Gold in my class 3 years running now.

    There's not much for competition though. Only one other dude in my class, lol...w00t, fr00t???

    This years trail was 4-4.5miles and I raced the age 30-39 Sport class which was 3 laps. My time was about 48:59. The other guy came in at 63:08. I got stuck behind some silly local girl that cost me prob. 30sec/1min just b/c I wanted to be nice and let her go for a while...finally I had to pass her, so she got outta the way. (trail was mostly singletrack)

    I thought I was going to suffer more than I did...I got to the last climb and still felt fine, so I knew that I had ridden a little conservatively. Oh well...I don't race enough to know what I got left in the tank sometimes

    The last two years has qualified me to race the 30-39 Sport Class in the State Games of America in 2009 at the Airforce Academy in Colorado.

    Not sure if I'm gonna do it yet...we'll see.

    V., Cat. Up

    1. To move up a category, often in reference to road bike racing
    2. When Catman undergoes his feline transformation

    "That sandbagging mofo better cat. up to 1 before I kill his punk ass."

    It's a term that comes from road racing, where we have categories instead of this Beginner, Sport, Elite etc. nonsense. It goes Cat. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Pro (domestic or International/ProTour).

    Ohhhh...gotchya!

    Well...I'm sorta "anti-cat" or something. The only difference between Beg/Sport/Exp is 1 lap. I don't really feel like doing 4 laps. I firmly feel that the difference should be a more technical trail to boot.

    Instead...the MTB race has been designed by freakin' roadies that think the only increase in difficulty is cardiovascular/endurance related. It should be a skill increase.

    Shoot man...I may just race beginner next year, hahahaha!!!

    You had to ask? His frame snapped, so a new front hub is on order to fix it.
