Frostbike 2011

This post is for De Cal, who is calling me out for never updating the blog. Fair enough.


Today was the first race of 2011, The Frostbike winter mtb race hosted by the Shorthills Cycling Club (not to be confused with the QBP trade show of the same name happening at the same time). Thanks to Andrew winning the male overall, he was taken out of the running for age group awards bumping me into 3rd Male Under 30.

Conditions were a big unknown all week but turned out alright. Lots of exposed ground for February, and only a little ice so I opted for the Racing Ralphs over studs. I think it was a fair call as there were not many places I had to be cautious due to ice and my only crashes had nothing to do with ice. I managed to take a chunk out of my knee in a high speed crash on the canal path of all places... ruts are not my friend?

It was nice to get out and work the lungs and bike handling a bit after many hours indoors. Now, back to the grind (i.e. work, training, wheelbuilding, etc...)
