Pre-race routine:

Had a basketball meeting and then grabbed the bike and headed down to KB for the race
Event warmup:

Rode the course 1.5 times - knew I was in for it then!
  • 1h 04m 3s
  • 9.66 miles
  • 9.05 mile/hr

This was a tough course - started off with a fast flat out and back and then the ski hill came into play. Walked that because the single speed was not going to make it up hill. Got on top of the hill and the technical aspect kicked in then - fun times. I should research some different tires because I was spinning out a lot on mine between standing and the torque to try and get moving up the smaller hills.

Had a great time and will be interested to see how I finish up overall - I passed some gears so I was happy with that.

Maybe next year I will get a geared bike to make these races more competitive!
What would you do differently?:

Have a geared cross bike
Post race
Warm down:

Rode around a little - cleaned off the bike and headed home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Gears and not a lot of riding lately

Event comments:

Great race and a very tough course - hopefully they do it again!
