new race, lots of twisty turns, long sandy section. Best of all, it’s 30 min from the house. Looking forward to doing it next year. good job ABRT.
My race: I flip flopped between the geared bike and the SS. Original plan was to do the 4′s on the SS and the B masters on the geared bike. The thing about having multiple bikes is, you forget when something needs to be done to them. Oh, that hub needs to be adjusted, I guess I’ll ride the other bike. That has a funny way of catching up to you and you need to fix all of your bikes at once. so 2 bikes and they were both partially screwy. The SS was less screwy so it was going to be that one. I flatted after the long sandy section. If I took the innertube out of the untrue front wheel of the other bike and changed it, I would be good for the 10AM race. I had PLENTY of time to do this, but then didn’t have a tire lever. At that point, rather than hunt one down, I threw in the towel, went down, made a short video. talked to a guy about his awesome older bike, and made it home in time to spend the lion’s share of halloween with my wife and a charming little lady dressed as a glow worm.
Rest of the season for me?
- Tacchino – my first foray into the B race (the allure of the single speed race)
- Shedd Park – I’ll be in MA for work so I guess I get to see how they do it in New England. The bike is also the Boston Transportation, so I will opt for SS as well.
- and that looks like that’s it. If the stars line up and it’s convenient, perhaps taneytown.
- Bakers Dozen FOlks are putting on the CATTLE CROSS: no USAC, and chip timed!
- The proteus race is officially not happening this year, but maybe if we’re lucky, some folks will throw some post season races.
looking at my options for the rest of the year, I think I will finish the year out on the single speed. Now the trick is to remember to do the upkeep on the major jake.
