2023 Grinduro! at Mt. Shasta - 61 miles race where they interestingly only time four segments (~20% of the race) of various representative skill/terrain combinations. I had rough rear derailleur issues after lunch and wasn’t sure was gonna finish!
Hunter and I bike the crazy 80 mile Rock Cobbler race in Bakersfield, CA, with 4 of our friends. Slippery mud, impossible climbs requiring hike-a-bike, cows, and over 8,000 feet of climbing insanity with 1,000 riders. This is the longest and hardest dirty ride of my life!
One Gravel Race; Two nights camping; 62 miles. OMG I just biked my longest off-road ever – by a long shot! (This is also my first bike race ever).
My new gravel bike Trek Boone 6 got upgraded today with 25% wider tires, and from tubed to tublesss. So that moves me from the stock 32c (mm width) tires to 40c.
