Winter Park Mountain Bike Race



This past weekend, I went up to Winter Park to race one of the mountain bike races in the Epic Single Track Series. This week was the Cross Country Super Loop. Lots of climbing, wicked fast descending, a bit of mud, several fast dirt road sections, and one hell of a good time.

The race would have been a bit more fun had I not got a slight bought of food poisoning the night before. It wasn’t much, but the Thai food I ate for dinner had me running to the toilet until 1:30am. Not the best race prep, but I was there to have fun, and I wasn’t gonna let a little Montezuma’s revenge keep me down.

As you can see from the data from my Timex GPS Global Trainer, it was rough start to the race. Straight uphill! Stomach cramps left me easing back on the throttle pretty much from the get go. I held things together for the most part, but finished a rather disappointing 21st out of 33.

The Valley Point to Point and Super D are on July 9th and 10th and I’m thinking I might wear the GoPro camera for one or both of those. Get ready to have some fun!
