2010 Final MTB Results

Not bad overall. Had some cramping issues, but was able to find the source-lack of magnesium. I think I peaked too early this year and the mid season was lack luster.

AFC Sugar Hill-7th Singlespeed
Mass Fair Hill-1st Singlespeed
Bakers Dozen-9th Singlespeed-Left after 11 laps/7 hours and 1st place
9 Hours of Cranky Monkey-14th Singlespeed

Finishing my first MTB season with the Crew

Final race at Fountainhead
This has been a pretty good year for me. Learned alot about myself as a racer and how to ride as if I were 25 again. All of my goals, which werent many, exceeded even my low bar for achievement. 8 top 10's and 6 podiums. Actually right down the line-1,2,3, two 4th's. 4th overall in points for the Cranky Monkey Series with 88.

As with every year, my goals are to beat last years previous course times. This year I went well beyond all of those goals. At 42, it certainly doesnt get easier for me. I raced all but one on the SS. I have my Ferrous and Superfly that I switch off and on.

With cross season around the corner, it's time to switch gears-uh...hmmm and start adjusting my training. Yeah, that's what I call it and I think it works. Thanks to The Crew's Travis Ott and Jon Rogers for the support!
