Our performances turned out to be more like the D Team. The
attached photo is as close as we could get to the podium?
We did have a fun conversation with the Rocky Mountain Bike rep and he is going to be in town Tues & Wed and we may get to demo some cool rides. Stay tuned for details.
As a follow-up to Peter’s Fontana report, my opinion was that the course was pretty tough. Having no idea what to expect, I pretty much just jumped on my bike and rode it cold… and the results speak for themselves. The course was not exceptionally long and the climbs were not that tough, but there were so many tricky technical parts I crashed twice and couldn’t get into any sort of rhythm. I saw tons of other guys crashing as well, riders leaving the course with bloody heads and broken fingers. When speaking to the Rocky Mountain bikes rep he said that it had gotten noticeably worse over the three days and by Sunday it was down right bad. I felt pretty beat up by it but I guess I can’t whine too much because some riders were able to get good results, this is a course that a pre-ride would really help. Sounds to me like the Del Mar folks were having more fun
