Blue turns to Brown

Blue turns to Brown

Fun times in the mud today at Ed Sander 'Cross. Worked the pit for the B Masters and after washing their bikes decided to not pre-ride the course. Lotta slop and grass clogging up the bikes.

The Blue did a great job of shedding mud and grass. Running the big mud pit helped. Glad a wore the old shoes too. They are a mess!

The Rhinos were perfect foe the conditions. Only a few slippery turns but they hooked up nicely and rolled the soft stuff and slop very smoothly. The tread + width (34) + running them kinda soft was perfect.

Good race for me as I got a decent start in the top 10, then hung on, before moving up a few spots with 2 to go. Couldn't catch the fast old guys but I'm happy with 5th. Chased Gwadz but couldn't quite catch him.

More later.

You are a horse for that course, but more importantly, thanks so much for jumping in and pitting for me. I think it helped, although by the end I realized that it wasn't the bike. You're getting one of 2 Mensch awards today.

Very class act. Thanks

Chris, very well ridden. You looked extremely smooth and in control. When you dropped that group of three other guys on the penultimate / last lap, I very much wasn't shocked. Nicely done, you seem at home among the elite.
