Ride, Sticker Patches

Rode with Jay, Doug and Joe today.  Joe showed me some new trails I haven't seen before in the watershed.





Sticker patches don't seem very reliable they go flat again within a couple of weeks.  I always carry them because they are don't take up much room, very easy to use and don't dry up like the glue dose with a glue patch kit.  Glue patches are the way to go for a long lasting repair.

On the Rocks At French Creek



On the Rocks At French Creek
Elverson, PA

A two lap (each lap 10 mile) race; same as last weekend’s MASS series race (at the granogue estate) this race is the only time that bikes are allowed on the property.   So I felt fortunate to have the opportunity to ride these trails.

About half way through my first lap I get a flat tire and was passed by all riders in my category.  Flat tires during races are pretty demotivating but seeing as money goes 15 deep I knew I still stood a chance to rake in some cash so I resorted to plan B which was finish top 15.

I pulled it off, finishing 13th.

All results

Several others on the Scott riders were there…

Scott Wilson finished 2nd in cat 1


Jay Dodge finished 1st in the maters cat 1

Cam Dodge was riding strong in the pro/open until he got a mechanical.

Wile riding with Joe I saw my fist rattlesnake; I guess there are a lot of them in the area...
Granogue race…
The course ended up being really fun.  It was a pretty fast with some hilly sections and only a few rocky sections. Teammate Aaron Snyder took an easy victory today...
I came in 5th
