    Hilton Falls Time Trial

    Hey all,

    Who's planning to tame this bad boy?

    I finished 3rd in 03 and 2nd in 04 in the 17-19 not so serious cat. This year i want to do the serious cat but i dont want to race alone! theres usually only one guy in the serious 17-19 cat. Im probably going to put myself down as a 20yr old instead just so i can race against someone.

    Anyone else gonna give her a go?

    I'd give it a go in the "not serious old guys" category, but I think I'll be in Myrtle Beach that week. (race is April 10) Was there a lot of rock garden stuf on the course last year???

    Is the difference between serious and not serious just distance, or is as the title's say the attitude of participants?
    it tied the room together man!

    The average time in the serious cat is typically 5mins faster per lap. Which isnt bad considering you do the lap twice. However last year the not so serious guys averaged the best lap times.

    Yea theres lots of rocky stuff...At the end of the race my legs were perfect, but my upper body was ruined.

    I might be going depends if my driver wants to try it as he sounded like he did. I'll be in the 30-39 cat though.
    Not so serious is 1 lap 10-12km and serious is 2 laps which I'll be doing

    I am thinking about racing it again this year. We're doing a road ride tomorrow so I'll see how I feel after that. If you see a Kona Explosif SS with rigid Surly fork come say hi!

    So, how was it?
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    My ride I thought that was going never did so I didnt have time to find another so instead rode the rouge which was great aside from the lower areas being too soft or muddy.

    As of sunday they were pretty manageable..there was the odd mud patch due to the snow melting. But given that we keep up this dry weather til the weekend..you're looking at Grade A escarpment riding.

    Cheers

    Well, gotta say congrats! Bet it felt real good to follow up last years performance with something better.
