    Funny to hear all the Bay Area City Slickers gettin in the PO and not realizing it. Damn, read your Outdoor Field Guide your wife/partner put in your stocking over the holidays. You are a mountain biker now, there are dangerous things out there.

    usually during a race you are concentrating on a lot of things, and what kind of branches are sticking out on the side of the trail just isnt one of them.

    As much as I go plowing through shrubbery in Ft. Ord, I am surprised that I haven't come down with a bad case of Poison Oak.

    Actually, I've never had PO, but as a kid I was always wrapped up with nasty cases of Poison Ivy (on the East Coast). It's a whole different bunch of crap that I have too look out for on the West Coast...Poison Oak..Mountain Lions...Coyotes...Mountain Lions...hippies...Mountain Lions.

    Yeah, I don't recall ever even thinking about PO during the race, despite having gotten in many times from that area. Now I have it on my arms and legs.

    Was trying to motivate self to go faster when guy who got second passed me. I just couldnt get up the gumption to chase him (my big mistake).

    After that just motored along with a single speeder motivating each other until the end.

    All in all a fun race...though i was a bit tired coming into it. Average HR was 182 which I was not to happy with Wont make next one but hopefully the one after that.
    Congrats Eric, way to go in the race and it was good seeing you out at trailwerks on superbowl sunday.

    Spoken like a true Fred. Next time I'll slow down and look for the Oak or maybe you can come out of the backwoods and show it to me
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go?

    I had a fun day! I won beginner series last year so I moved up to Sport 19-34 and expected to be dead last but I ended up 6th out of 12, 6 minutes behind the leader at 1 hour 33 minutes.

    Great trail conditions and weather! Finished the day in Santa Cruz eating at Kiantis with the girlfriend for Valentine's Day. So everyone was happy by end of the day. I got to race and gf got to eat for free

    See you guys in 2 weeks.

    He, he... as BigDaddio succinctly put it... It's a dammmm race!

    This is a constant and serious problem at cccx as the racing line always goes though those fresh oak shoots.

    You guys treat your oak seriously now. Do not scratch and go to the doctor if it's in your bloodstream and popping up everywhere. The early season oak is always potent.
