>>WEEKEND

WISSSC


Wisconsin State Single Speed Championships at Bluemounds. One of the toughest and funnest races i did this year. 6th on the bike and off to a fast downhill start. Dangled off the back of the top 5 for the first couple miles than backed off to a conservative pace. Struggled to get the hang of the treacherous singletrack. Got caught by Klug and Harlan, rode briefly with them. Stopped and let some air out of my front tire to ease navigation through the rocks. Recovered and rode away from them. Time checks had the top 5 a few minutes up. 2nd lap felt good and i tried to push it bit more. Passed a Darcy rider with a flat, then Goat with a flat, which was a bummer since he was riding pretty well. With only the Lalonde bros and Mike P well ahead i just tried keeping it consistent and rolled in with a satisfying 4th place. Props to Murphykate and Amy for duking it out for 4 some hours in the womens race with MK taking the win. Good seeing all the Hayes, Team WI and Tosa crew racing, hanging out and cheering everyone on.

I agree...it was an awesome ride and route. We'll definitely have to do it again and add an extra 20. My only complaint...why so many shots with that Punk in them?!?!?! His head is big enough already!

You know he can't stay away from the lens.

Did you fill your water bottles at the convenient outdoor bubblers at Holy Hill?
I did HH on Saturday. Some great riding out there; Emerald, Hogsback, St. Augustine, etc. Wish I could have done Sunday too....
