Qualification for the National Mountain Bike Championship

Today was a good day. Started out at 9 am with SWIMBA to pre-ride the course for the Coyote Classic - a qualifier race for the National Mountain Bike Championships this July in Sun Valley.

Went back out and raced at 3 pm. Long hard single track climb and a very fast downhill with a few shorter climbs near the end-two laps and nearly cramped to the point of not being able to walk let alone ride. did plenty of walking on the second lap. finished in about 2:05 min good enough for first place in the over 50 age group for Category 3.

I'll go to Sun Vally and see how I do with the rest of the national competitors. The Energy return Bicycle was Great !

Where to go from here...

A new year has sprung. Finally great weather for the 7 mile commute to work on the 1978 Motobecane ten speed inherited from my step father.

At age 53 considering a run at the National Mountain Bike Championship race in Sun Valley. Qualifying race this weekend. Wish me good racing and God's speed!
