    Thankyou Niner

    For making the One 9 such a great race bike.

    Last night was the first time I've ever won a race and no small part of that was down to my 18.5lb One 9.

    Only rigid, single speed racer and I beat everyone in my old guy cat (Expert Vet) AND the young guys in Expert (11 other riders in total).

    I don't think the field will let me get the jump off the start line next race. I'm sure they thought I would pop but I went around with almost metronomic timing and never missed a beat.

    Still high as a kite on adrenaline !!!

    Good job

    Many more good results will come because race results are the display of the hard work you have put in, Both in training & in working out what gear suit you.

    Top effort.

    Rock on!

    I find my One 9 to be an awesome XC race bike too. Accelerates like nothing else I have ridden/raced, including my other XC race bike - Air 9.
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    No doubt they'll be watching me more closely but if I can get out in front I'll have a good chance.

    Race past was a "climbers" race which handed me the advantage. Next race is a singletrack race and certainly there will also be open, flat sections, this is where I may lose position.

    Either way I'm going to give it 100%

    Next race in this series is July 15th but before that I have an 8 hour race on 11th.

    I have very high hopes for the 8 hour...

    I freaking love the fork.

    It feels like 40mm of suspension, trail noise is so subdued when riding it but I don't have any weight penalty.

    Another race, another victory.

    This one was an 8 hour endurance race. I completed 15 laps of a 9km course in the 8 hour time, 2 laps clear of the second placed rider.

    The bike ran awesome, never missed a beat and I was comfortable for the whole ride.

    Thursday is back to short races but I may pass on this one. Today I'm exhausted and weighing myself dropped around 3 lbs yesterday. When you're only 150lbs before the race 3lbs feels like a lot !!

    Nice work Bob! I also won my first bike race on a Niner (my Jet that was recalled). Winning is a great feeling, isn't it!
    Studies show 100% of people die. Might as well have some fun.
