Start spreading the news...

I'm leaving in 3 weeks. That's right New York, New York. Fortunately I will be in the catskills not in the city. But, only a 2 hr train ride away so there will be frequent visits into the Big Apple. Of course I've already investigated the racing in the area. I was a little bummed to know that the Windham National race was to happen the weekend before I go up there. But, that was quickly forgotten when I realized I would be having the time of my life at RIM that same weekend. There will be some races in the area though, so I'll get to try my hand at some mini mountain racing. 

Oh, in past racing news be on the lookout for a video from the Cramp Alexander race. I will try and get that up in the very near future. Although I realize we're still waiting on a DK video from me. Life is busy Jim! Hopefully you can view both of those this weekend. Hmm...can't say much else is happening. Just training my little buns off for rapture. Hopefully i'll be seeing you all there!

Cramp Alexander mtb race

The turnout for the race was excellent. Thanks to everyone that came out and to those that put in a lot of work to get this thing going. I hope all the racers enjoyed themselves. The local High Gear riders were well represented today with Chris Wiggins winning the sport class. Mike and Tim had a strong showing in a very stacked expert class and Garret just missed the podium. Shad Schreiner blazed the course to take the overall win. Camp Alexander's very own Anton Sandoval took the beginner men's win in his very first mtb race. Congrats to everyone!
