    Congrats to PRAJC @ 24 HOA WSC

    Many of you know Peter (aka PRAJC) and know that he does way too many 24 hour races to be as old as he is! Well, chalk another one up for him b/c this weekend he was at the 24 Hours of Adrenalin Solo World Championships in Conyers, GA and he delivered again with a 7th place finish out of 10 competitors in his class.

    Last year at the same course, Peter's goal was 15 laps and he rode 15, but only got counted for 14 b/c he finished #15 just minutes AFTER the 1:00pm cut off.

    This year his goal was to complete 16 laps on the brutal course and he did -- all of them before 12:00 noon! He looked strong throughout the night and kept his head about him (would you expect less?). The guy that was wrenching for me said after the first lap that Peter looked a bit ragg-ed, but I assured him that was just Peter getting in his zone!

    Next time you see him, give 'em a big hollar! GO PEET-AAAA!!!!!!

    Nope. He wasn't able to raise the funds needed but Granny Gear is being cool and transferring his registration to a race for next year. Thems good folks up 'er!

    What’s his secret?

    The tilty helmet intimidates the competition?
    The chest hairs draw the groupies?

    Personally, I think it’s in the water bottle…

    Congrats P!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Extra thanks to K2biker for helping me with battery charging, that saved me a lot of time. I was pleased with my best effort at Conyers so far. I posted a race report in my new blog: http://www.slowsologuy.blog.com
    The nickname "Slow Solo guy" was given to me last year at Conyers, when I rode much slower than I did last weekend.

    I did raise enough founds for Moab, however, I could not go for other reasons (could not get time off from work, family emergency and other issues). Granny gear was very understanding and transferred my entry to the next year's race at Moab without problems. I am considering racing the GG 24-hour series next year so I may show up at Conyers again in May.

    That picture was taken by Eric/PP during the Burn race. For some reason, my helmet was tilted and i did no know about it until I saw the pictures!

    I understand the unique helmet strategy. So perfectly simple! Go slow, with a tilt – and ride forever. Beats Team Dicky’s Azz Grater seat concept all to Hardees.
