sticker patches seem to work well about half the time the other half of the time they go flat again within a couple of weeks... you live you learn then you get luvs ( i mean glue patches)

I could ride a bit slower through rocky sections... that would probbly help cut down on my # of flats... but I can’t force myself to do that … Sammy Hagar knows exactly what I am going through… he deals with a similar situation where he can’t drive 55… he wants to but he just can’t.
I purchased some continental mountain king 2.4” tires… which are listed as all mountain tires and I plan to set the rear up tubeless… hopefully that will solve my flat problems.

On the Rocks At French Creek
Saturday, May 08, 2010
A two lap (each lap 10 mile) race. same as last weekend’s MASS series race (@ 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 sweet trails on the only day every year that it is legal to do so.
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.
Several others on the scott rc crew 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

Saturday I did a ride with Joe...
Wile riding with Joe I saw my fist rattlesnake… I guess there are a lot of them in the area...
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 with no real challengers …
Some horse and buggies that where passing through the race venue...
