No big shock, my next road bike.. A Tarmac .

Soggy bottom round 1 race update

So the first rounds always the round to hit and the last big race of the year, the Masters class was stacked with top riders and i was happy to get off the line first and come out turn one in second spot, First main climb would see me slip down and out the top ten before the singletrack  dh section kicked in and we moved up to 10th, I would hold down 10th for the rest of the race, The track it self had one grass climb, a long flat grass section, a steep climb and just one long mellow dh. most top riders run a garmin/strava and i was happy to get the top speed out of anyone on the day. Roll on 2013 with a focus on adventures rather than racing. so 3 trail spots in a day will be back again! We have a few more cool trips and ideas we are doing both on and off road. Other news.. I think its time to get a fresh road bike! more on that in the next blog.

till next time peace.

Soggy Bottom Winter MTB XC Race - Round 1 2012

Tuesday, 13 November 2012

Soggy bottom round 1

This event may not have the cool name factor but the first round of the Soggy series has always been a must hit event for a range of riders, xc, dh, freeriders all seem to come to the first round to kick back, meet new and old mates plus some hard racing on the former world cup xc track. Its this Sunday and the cream of the south west crop will be in action, weathers looking mixed and the track will be in the park area only and not on the moors this year  (so sharp steep climbs and flowing singletrack). I may have a cold and limited time on the bike the last few weeks but im still going and giving it a good crack and see what comes of it.

Grogley DH , Cornwall

 Good to get the KBC big lid out and get some DH riding in.

RMX with its 888's killed it at Grogley, sadly a blown back brake made things hard work.
Ok so it was muddy, wet,slick and nasty.. But it was also fun, a lot of fun, small kickers, tight singletrack and steep rollers and some fine switchbacks and even a rock garden makes Grogley Cornwalls top up and coming DH venue, With 3 main tracks and more getting built by the locals the spots growing with some fine trails and a great hill to build 2min plus DH and enduro trails. If you get the chance head to Grogley! Just make sure you have your mud gear ready, you dont get many dry trail days at Grosgley.
