Lets just pretend that I did race in the race I told you about in my last blog. Since we are all pretending lets pretend that I am in much better shape than I really am. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s say that my lung capacity holds hugh amounts of oxygen and that my quads are the size of tree trunks and lets make the trees Redwoods. Oh, and since we are in a perfect world, then I would come in
Evomo Sponsored rider David Lowe sent us this race report from Northern California (aka: NorCal).
The course was pretty flat and had maybe only 600ft of climbing. At the start it was on a road going up hill. A group of 7 or so of us broke away at the start of the single track. I was in the back getting a good draft off of everyone. It was sandy, flat, boring, all the climbs were less that 30secs, no technical at all – meaning there was no rocks or ruts to navigate.
This was probably one of the hardest races for me. I’m better off
Well its the day before Southridge Fontana Race and I’m feeling good about todays practice and the race day.
Its supposed to be in the 90s tomorrow so we should be in for a very sweaty ride and the pads will need to be washed. I’ll Up date this on monday… stay tuned.
Well the race in Fontana was definitely a good one. There were lots of people there just to watch and then of course the racers themselves. The trail was very good it had good flow and a lot of turns which made it interesting the of course the off camber section where there were a lot of bails. There was a big crash on Saturday during practice the guy who crashed and broke his shoulder and the ambulance had to be called. Over all the race was a good experience for me as i progress through the different categories now I race expert 19-26 I came out 4th with a time of 2:39.02
On Saturday I had my second Arizona State Championship race. It was at the race course that everyone hates; Estrella Mountain Regional Park it is the hardest course that we have and the rockiest course too. The two things you need out there is Kenda tires and Stans No Tubes. So I got out there and felt good, I was ready for the race.
I’m at the start line talking to the people around me trying to get in there head, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I hear the 15 second to go and I focus on the trail next thing I know we take off and I get hit by the person on
What an exciting weekend in Fontucky. Greg (our socal sales rep slash 24 hour endurance team-mate) and I both hit the Southridge DH Race today in Fontana. We were able to hook up with Shea Jordan and Jami Pellegrino, two of Evomo’s latest sponsored riders. They clearly have some serious skills and tuercas after seeing they way they handled…
