Kenda Klassic @ Mt Snow mtn bike race
pro/ semi pro
This one was tough for me. It is the kind of race that makes me wish I had trained more. I believe my worst result to date in this series( root 66) and I don’t have much for excuses.
There were about 23 starters in my category, that I counted. I was back and forth with John Rowe for most of the race. He was better than me @ climbing and I was better @ descending so we were bouncing back and forth through out the race. It was nice so have a buddy to keep the motivation up.
Going into the last lap, I hit a drainage ditch hard and flatted my rear wheel. It took less than 5 min to fix but it killed my motivation. Plus my riding buddy John Rowe left me in the dust.
As I finished up the race I wondered about what possible excuse I could give in my blog for my horrible performance....nothing came to mind.
I've got a coupe of national races on the up coming scheduled. Windham NY and Mount Snow, again. both ski mountain races. Based on my performance today I will be lucky if I don’t get lapped. On a brighter side Andrew Freye (team mate) did well, he won the race by a lot!!!. Beat me by over 45 min, that’s the same time gap Adaim Craig had on me @ nationals last year.
Rest of the results
