    Yup, first race 'o the year for me. From all the posts, Toro sounds like a fun course. Tire recomendations anyone? Not brand name- just should I run my fatties or skinnies?

    i dunno... gonna be my first race ever... I heard the course is more of a Super D though... not really DH... a lot of pedaling and smoother then Sea Otter... lol I think running 2.35 Minions should be fine for the day...

    Hey Francis, see you at the xc race. I'll be in the cyclesports / team oakland jersey, probably on a red blur. I think I'm racing sport 35+.

    I'd do the dh, but then I'd win so hard that everyone'd be devastated and they'd cry and they'd have to have another race for everyone else special olympics style. Cause I totally slay. So I'll just do the xc.

    Nuh-uh.

    I'm hella faster than you at downhill, ridin' my front suspension (100mm BAYBEE!!) with my spandex shorts all halfway down my bum gangsta-style, all making everyone just go home 'cause they're too slow and making all the girls scream 'cause they saw part of my bum and want to see more.

    I'm going. Just haven't figured out what I am racing yet. Actually since Francis is doing the ss, I think I'll opt out of that. I'm not ready to battle him yet.

    Michael is coming to race too. His once a year mtb race.

    that course was great! Now that I'm not doing them, I thought all of the climbing added a great chess match element in terms of how hard, when, and for how long. The decents were a blast, and I think my handling skills got better today for sure. Tick it was good to meet you. It was also good to FINALLY meet the legendary Francois, I'm looking forward to a Thu night at the Gap with you fellas. Thanks to RJ3 for the very tasty and well timed Sierra Nevada.

    It looks like HCW is paying off for me now. Last year in CCCX, I was lucky to be in the top 10. Today I won my second CCCX race at Toro Park, (love that climb)

    I have recently converted my Niner to a 1 X 9 set up from SS in preparation for Sea Otter XC. Friday night when installing a new cassette, 12 X 23 (itís like a SS with a few extra gears) it was just not shifting right and its 10pm the night before my race! I discovered I had a bent Derailleur hanger, after about 45 min. and a few tweaks the bike was shifting like it should. All I could think about was a skipping chain on the long climbs. Hmmm, maybe SS isnít that bad after all.

    The race went very well, I was able to take the lead at the start and never looked back. I was well into the two classes that started ahead of me halfway through the first climb and the bike was shifting like a champ.

    Looks like I will be in Sport next year.

    Carmen has a lot of picís of the Sports race and she hope to have some of them posted by Sunday night.

    francois thank's for the Socks.

    Hereís my Motion Based link for the race.

    That was a fun course! Having never ridden it before the race, I took it easy on the first lap to get familiar, but by the fourth lap that downhill was really starting to get fun. The climb was also not too bad. Solid middle ring effort with only a few short steep spots. I finished mid-pack, which sure beats the last place result from race #3.

    Way to go Francis for not only passing me with ease on the first lap, but also nabbing a top five finish. And congrats to Jeff for another win. Sport class awaits...

    Francis, good to meet you. It was fun, lots of friends. I love the CCCX races, cross and mountain.

    I got 3rd in sport 35+, just missed 2nd. Your friend Cesar (name?) beat me. Woulda coulda shoulda. That was my first time on the Toro course. It was so... binary! Brutal climb, sexy singletrack descent, repeat.

    Here's my tracks for the race, check out the per-lap data:

    Right on Al. Sounds like your race came together nicely. So what was your trick for not cramping?

    I cramped before the crest of the 4rth lap. So I put it in a low gear and just winced.

    I don't know if there is a trick, because I had some twitch legs on the last lap climbing. The only thing that saved me was the gel my wife gave me before the lap started. Here's what a nutritionist friend told me:

    1) Day before race: 3:1 ratio of water to a bottle of your favorite secret sauce (Heed, Cytomax, etc). She also said race day hydration starts 2-3 days before the event.

    2) Race morning: get up by 7am and start hydrating, and drink a bottle of sauce on the way to the venue. Sauce bottle during the warm up, and don't eat anything solid two hours before race time. I also took some Endurolytes and Sport Legs about an hour before the race. This is where a gel flask comes in handy.

    3) During the race: I'm extremely lucky because my wife goes to the races, and gives me a fresh bottle every lap if I need it, and gels if I'm out. Today I went through three bottles, two gel flasks, and a right before the last climb to keep the bad man away in my legs.

    4) Post race: she wants me to drink either Endurox or Accelerade to get some protein until I can get something solid to eat.

    Hope this helps!

    Nice!! Is that moving time accurate on your motionbased? My time was around 1:32 as well. So we climbed 3,434 feet that fast? Optimistic motionbased prob'ly.

    Cesar huh? That guy took the year off biking last year. Maybe he was just in secret training. He looks so damn light.

    Cool family shots!

    I had zero warm-up since I was so late but I pinnned it on the first lap. I was lucky to survive.

    That descent was sketchy on the first lap. Rigid fork gave me a little beat down.

    I have the Astrix Monk for you to test. I think it's just your size.

    A monk to test? Sounds divine!

    Big wheels and full suspension would have been just the ticket on that downhill singletrack we hit today. Let me know when it's convenient this week and I'll swing by to pick it up.

    After looking at Morgan's Motion Based times all I need to do is bring my average speed up 1 mph + and add a lap of pain, to be near the front in Sport

    Gee it seems so simple, but it's so hard.

    I think it's accurate. I forgot to turn it off after my race, had an extra ten minutes on lap four, so I edited the xml and cut out everything after the finish line latitude / longitude. MB still shows the total time including my post-race knuckleheadedness. Edit: fixed it.

    Now it's just shy of 5AM, and I'm doing it all over again. We had to get up at 4:30 yesterday to be there in time for my wife's 9AM race. Today I'm workng at the Vuelta de Brisbeen. My team helps put it on. Then race with the medium old guys at 1. Tonight I am going to sleep!

    We got zero racing pics, but plenty of goofy pics. Kids had a good time in spite of driving "forever".

    Oh dude it's true. Still if you won the beginner race you belong with the sports! It's an upward path. And the sports are nothing like the experts. Nothing will make you go faster than racing a category up. It's eye-opening just how much faster some fields are, but on the flip side you have that much capacity for improvement in you, if you want it. That's one of the reasons why I love racing.

    I agree with Morgan 100%. Last year was a pretty good one for me (five top fives), but this year, WHOA MAMA! The learning curve got a lot steeper, but yesterday's race was the best one yet, and I think I finished 16 or so mins off the lead. But, my first race was 20 mins off, and the 2nd one was a DNF. Life is definitely on its way to getting better on the bike.

    One of the things that has helped is doing road races. Nothing builds race fitness like, well, racing, and there are a ton of skinny tire races around the Bay Area.

    These shots are from the great Carmen aka ibikergal. Thanks a ton. A lot of them were backlit and with tough lighting conditions. A little photochop though and they were good to go.

    CCCX DH #3

    4:24.- -

    Did better than I thought I would, but not as good as I'd hoped.

    I'd like to have shaved an extra 5-10 seconds off of my time. Then I'd have been really happy.

    Will post a picture later.

    Wow, I don't look like I am having fun, do I?

    Quick report: I sucked, pretty much (again). Note to self: just riding road bike in between races is not enough. Also eat better the day before.

    It was weird, I passed a couple guys at the bottom at the beginning of the last lap. I basically rode the entire rest of the last lap with no one in sight, either in front or behind. I made the classic mistake of thinking "OK, I can take it a touch easy so I don't crash on the way down." Which of course almost killed me.

    It was great to meet all you guys, though! And thanks for the socks,Francis. I am totally wearing them at the next race. Hopefully I won't let the brand down.

    Francis, that's a pretty nice kit from the sponsors- it makes you look fast. how did those tires handle on that off camber stuff? I assume pretty well since you didn't go down and you posted a fast time without any gears. i was thinking about the course and you must have given up about a minute on the rolling fast downhill sections. i was in a huge gear for that part. i can't imagine being able to pedal fast enough on a single speed.

    it was good to see/meet other mtbr folks like Datenschwanz, JeffH, Ibikergal, SashaX, Rumpfy (didn't get to meet him, but knew that was him on that old..err..vintage bike), and others.

    well, i did learn something from the race on saturday- i need some faster tires for these races. 2.25 Wierwolf's are fun at downieville and skeggs, but not the preferred race tire. i'd like to think that a few adjustments would have shaved off that 1:20 between me and first place. maybe if i had a hard tail? yeah right, maybe if i didn't eat so much for lunch everyday :-)

    fun day!

    It's good to meet you man. Those woolies will come in handy in SF. Just make sure you join us for some Skeggs rides.

    You're representing mtbr as long as you're pedaling and loving it.

    Lemme just say this. You would have gone way faster on my bike. That course was ideal for SS. It was really handy that I couldn't shift at the asphalt section. I had to crank, then I always got relief on the dirt climb.

    For the descents, there was always someone crashed in front of me on the top section so I had to slow down anyway and go at a safe speed. Rigid fork and SS go hand in hand since you can't go fast enough to get in trouble with the fork on downhills.

    Definitely get a fast tire for Sea Otter. Pre-ride next week yo.

    I'd love to blame it on that...but I'm not sure that's a legit reason.

    I did choose to ride a 15 year old bike.

    I told you you were faster than me.

    Some highlights!!

    - JeffH continues to dominate his group. Last year, he couldn't break out of mid-pack beginner. This year, watchout!

    - Aussie Bob hasn't missed a race yet. His knees are starting to complain he said.

    - Dirt_Diggler had the second fastest time in sport. Dammm.

    - Last race, the singlespeed crushers (Michael and Erik) put 7 minutes on me! This race, just 2 minutes

    - DennistheMennis who won all his sport races to date, upgraded to expert. Gracious.

    - Sabine in Expert/Pro women cranked out 5 laps in style.

    - the winner of Pro Class, Corey Ward is Photo-John's half brother.

    - Mike Donahue, in expert singlespeed was in the lead pack of 5 geared expert/pros for a few laps.

    others?

    yeah, that's me. i didn't realize my helmet also sits a little bit far back, leaving my big forehead and tiny frontal lobe exposed to the hazards. that's like a free lobotomy waiting to happe. man, i look like a four year old with his mickey mouse helmet placed on his head like a bonnet.

    anyway, enough of that. who here raced tires that they liked on that course? i want something light and fast for sea otter.

    Well I had a good race, I even went faster, my gps unit said a whole 0.6 mph faster average speed than my last race at Toro Park. I am using the tortoise and the hare series strategy or I am following Plim's slowmentum approach to racing. If I show up at all the races and finish, even though I am slow, after a quick calculation of the result I am currently in 3rd place overall in the points for beginners woman. It seems that some woman try the class once and never come back again, I just don't know Why!!

    Yesssss!

    I railed the DH, but got spanked on the uphills. Either way it was a really fun time for first race of the year for me. I figured that I get to ride for free all the time, so the CCCX #5 was just a $30 group ride.

    I was running Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.1" UST tires at about 35psi front and rear, with a little Stans on Mavic 819 UST rims. Perfecto! They're my cccx / sea otter tires.

    schwalbe makes excellent tires. though i've never ridden their mtb stuff, i've never been more satisfied with their road tires. fast, light, durable and STICKY when it counts, both in the corners and in the rain. where did you pick them up? we carry their road stuff at www.Velotechcycles.com in palo alto, but there will be no way i can get mtb tires in time to get used to them and race on them for sea otter.

    I ran the ralphs on the rear and a knobby nic (both 2.1) on the front and it was a great combination for that course. I like the way the nics dig in a little more than the ralphs on some of the sketchier corners. Schwalbes run sweeter at lower tire pressures, so the only negative was the excess squish on the paved sections...but those were thankfully short.

I also got a set of UST Racing Ralphs the next size up, 2.25 UST. I haven't tried them yet. Trying Nobby Nic's next, on my Blur, just for fun. Not sure if they'll be tuff enuff for Downieville but they look like good tires. Want to try the Fat Albert too.

    I've heard good things about the Maxxis Advantage too. I'd try those.

    I raced CCCX on my Blur. It was definitely too much squish for that course. I'm building a light hard tail. It probably won't be ready in time for Sea Otter but that's my kinda bike for those courses. The Blur felt good on the singletrack tho, and it was nice to bomb the rocks / root right before the finish.

    Thanks, but it was 6 if you count the warm up lap, which was the most stylie of the laps.

    And congrats to PJ's bro, that was quite the battle between him and two older but not slower hammers.

    Dang...Francis, you went and got fast on me!

    And you guys were the best cheering section ever.

    I've got the Fat Alberts on my SS and I love them, especially on a hard tail for the added few millimeters of squish. They really need to be run at very low pressures. At higher pressures I hated them, but love them low. Too much tire for Sea Otter/CCCX but might be nice for Downieville. They are my Soquel Demo tires. They are the closest replacement I have found for my favorite WTBs.

    I ran 2.35" Maxxis Ignitor UST tires on my SS and I liked them - yeah, even 30psi felt too hard.

    Thanks, Sabine! Good to see you Sat. I thought something was wrong when I saw you on your warm up lap, didn't realize you weren't racing. My brain workn't wasing too good with the lack of oxygen and stuff.

    But you rode in SS class Is "so I put it in low gear" SS-speak for "I got out of the saddle and wonk-wonk-wonk"? I gotta learn this hipster SS jargon.

    Paging Morgan Fletcher. This is a race write-up from Cesar, who finished 1 second ahead of you.

    It's kind of a hard read... but insightful.

    Ha! That's cool.

    So, uh, my kinda report:

    Get up at 4:30, pack kids and wife in car by 5:30, Toro by 7:30. Lauren races 9:00. I am dad and hang with the kids while I see tonsa people riding and stretching and eating and tuning and stuff. I am in civvies, hanging out by the playstructure, watching my kids. 10:30 change, get bike, wrangle kids. 10:45 I'm nervous, "Where's Lauren?" She has my full-finger gloves and I can't just let the kids be alone. She comes in at 10:50, I get gloves, congratulate her, give her a kiss, charge up the asphalt climb for a "warmup." See a guy who must be Francis. "Hey Francis!" See Keith deFiebre in a truck at the top of the climb, "Rod's doing the start, get back down there."

    Eeeeerrrroooommm "C'mon Francis, they're doing the start."

    Get to the start line, roll to the back of the pack. First mtn bike race of the year, no expectations, it was a heavy training week. Got my excuses all readtogo. (Blur's too big and heavy, I'm too big and heavy, etc)

    See Erik Zimmer. (Morgan Stanley guy) OK, there goes 1st. Erik, you should upgrade.

    I've got a bottle in my cage and some clif blocks in my pocket. Grabbed a freebie water bottle by the finish line and stuck it in my back pocket. I have not ridden the course. Oh well.

    First lap, hammer! Passed as many people as possible. Tim Simanski from Roaring Mouse gets by me at the top. I am hesitant on the unknown singletrack descent, let him gap me and get out of sight. Next thing I know I'm on an off-camber section and Tim is 40' down the hill, pushing his bike up. Bummer! Didn't see him again. Starting at the back was a mistake. I get caught in some traffic on the descent. Dang, rookie mistake. Feeling humble made me start in the back. I know from cross that's a mistake. Rode and learnt the descent, did not go fast enough, stuck in traffic.

    Second lap, owie. Scale back but keep the pressure on. Ride and talk for a bit with Erik Thunstrom on the SS cross bike. He is STRONG. Inspiring. Reflect on the fact that I brought too much bike. Yeah, that's it. Are all Erik's fast? Descended slightly better, still not dialed. Drank some water, ate some clif blocks.

    Third lap, feeling stronger. Some City Cycle dude can't climb my pace, but thinks he can show me how it is on the descent, cutting me off at the top. OK. Mission #1, drop City Cycle on the climb. See ya! See this Tropa guy on the climb. He keeps looking back. What's he looking at? I want to tell him - but I can't breathe and he's up the hill ahead of me - "Don't look behind you. The race is in front of you." See pretty girls, get smiles and encouragement. Oh that's better than gu's. Flow down the descent better.

    Fourth lap, drink some, eat remaining clif blocks. See Tropa guy. "I'm gonna get you sucka." GRRRRRIIIIINNNNDDD Got him. Turn the switchback at the top, Tropa's out of sight, now chasing a guy with a COLOMBIA jersey. Then there's my friend Jenny, I've just lapped her. She's kinda bummed but always in a good mood, smiling. I say "Hi Jenny!" Give her a big push on her rear end. She laughs. She says "Wait let me take this line" and rolls over my line in the deep sand. We're still climbing, near the top. I have to unclip as she takes the good line. It's OK. I re-clip and Tropa's behind me. Curse word! We're climbing and there's another woman ahead of us. There isn't enough room to get by her yet, I wait. Tropa totally bombs between her and me, making the woman exclaim "whoa" and go off her line. Then he's on the descent and I'm chasing him. He passes a guy, who I then get stuck behind. Guy's jersey is clean, he's going kinda slow. I hazard a guess he's warming up. "Racer!" I yell. Nothing. We're cruising the singletrack. "Racer!" I try again. Nothing. Just cruising, Tropa and Colombia out of sight. "Sorry, are you racing?" I ask, and he replies "Yeah!" "Sorry!" I wait for a moment then call it "Left! ... Thanks!"

    Chase chase chase... 3rd.

    I love Jenny but I probably shoulda just bombed past her with a "Hey Jenny!" Woulda coulda shoulda

    Next time.

    Morgan

    Har! You should have just barreled over Jenny! Funny, the other dude's report makes no mention of there being other people in his way. That wouldn't be a first for many a racer though. Thank you Morgan for being considerate...its just a bike race after all.

    The guys who passed us in our race were all very considerate and in fact, I almost took out Brett Lambert and Pat Schott because I am right/left dyslexic and moved left when they said passing left. Oopsie. But, I have been barreled over on more than one occasion by a passing Sport racer. No offense to sport racers as I am just uber generalizing here, but I'm thinking the skill and maybe speed differential isnt there yet to make some passes as safely as they should.

    Michael's got a little report on the cccx race here

    and here's a bonus pic of Jenny, all happy that you didn't run her off the road!

    That is a great pic of Jenny!

    I wish I could write like Michael.

    Looking forward to Sea Otter and Lemurian. And Copperopolis. See you at the races.

    Yeah... I heard there would be small children nearby...

    I actually had one of those "Oh crap! I left the other glove at home..." days on Saturday.

    Congrats on your excellent finish up at boggs.

    Geoff - is it just me or do you look "pissy" in that first photo...;-)

    Your face seems to be saying "uggggh"

    Last Sat. I was up racing at Boggs. My 2nd race ever! Solo 8hr.

    I'll be at Otter most of the days, and will be racing SportSS. How about you?



    "Congrats on your excellent finish up at boggs."

    Thanks Alex. That was a very well run race and an interesting experience. I'll say that I mentally wimped out on the 9th lap.
    Reading about your guy's race, I wished I'd been there mixing it up with FC!
