Down hill Slide

Well the Laramie Enduro is out of the way for me. It was a mixed success. Finished about 40 minutes faster than two years ago (when I was on a full suspension geared bike vs. this year on a full rigid single speed). Even still, the field was faster and I finished 101st this year vs. 88th two years ago.


In the single speed division I locked up the 14th place, right in the middle of the pack. We started with the Pros andExperts, and I am reasonably certain that some of the ss guys were pros too. The guy that got 7th in the ss division last year came in way behind me, so I don't know what that means.


Anyway, weather was beautiful for the race, course was in good shape, and I had a great time.


My daughter made the trek with me and my mom and stepdad caravanned up too. We all visited some family afterward and that was cool too. It was a great road trip with my daughter though, we had so much fun.


Here are a couple pictures from the race. Do I look shot?


Since then I haven't ridden. Trying to get the house painted, and as usually happens it is a bigger project than I hoped or bargained for. See you when the paint is drying.

That's why I haven't seen you out riding the past couple of weeks. Sounds like a heck of a race and you did well! Congrats man!

Thanks, it was fun.

The real reason I haven't been riding is that I am in the throws of painting my house. I'm down to trim on two sides, then I'm done. Should be riding again by the end of the week.

Wooo Whooo!
