Nice work! So, you're new to all of this?Dove right in to MTB this year. My newly opened LBS called out on FB for interest in a bike racing team, didn't know it was XC when I volunteered. Borrowed a friends entry level HT (spring front, mech discs, 26") and tried the Temecula 12 hour solo. Broke a chain about 10 hours in but I was hooked. Used the same bike for the first 3 rounds of the Kenda Cup West.
Bought a good AM FS 27.5" bike (too good of a deal and I had the money) and started racing that. Finished 2nd on my first race on the bike with s crash and no adjustments. First in the second race. Cat 3 of course.
Raced the Wildflower MTB sprint tri, 2nd in my age group (bike was overkill, super easy running trails).
Looking forward to the 2nd 12 hour next month and the last two XC rounds. Will get my ass kicked in Cat 2 next season
I've been racing triathlon for a few years and started commuting by bike a year ago so I've got the power in my legs. And road racing motorcycles for even longer so I've got a lot of practice with bike handling. I just had to transfer that over to MTB.Nice work! So, you're new to all of this?
