Race report

Tough race... lots of climbing mid stage, especially the first stage. First stage was a monster 13 minute stage. Fitness was key. Still best result to date in the overall intermediate cat, pretty happy with my result and performance considering fitness is not one of my strengths.

Race report

Fun race... raced blind though, felt great on the bike, rippin through corners and launching down some dusty gnar. Raced the 1st and last stages well through some parts, but made big mistakes when surprised by certain sections and lost time. I set some great times on stages 2 & 3, visibility was good and no weird surprises. Will be sure to pre-ride for the last race of 2019 (Maple) and finish strong.

Blind race... lots of fun, never ridden the park before. Did well enough for a blind race... will look to do better next year. Was best on the tech gnar trails and worst on the jumpy bermy flow... need to improve there.

Race report

Home race... seems pressure may have gotten to me. Started out awesome, with a 12th place on stage 1! Stage 2, overcooked it early (great times on upper sections) which caused early fatigue and mistakes during a couple sections (minor little crashes, had to run up a climb) and then just slow. Great stage 3 = 22nd place. Stage 4 was going awesome... very good times, but again maybe overcooked causing a mistake and minor tumble on a rock climb, then later got off line and crashed hard trying to get back on = ruined my stage and overall time.

Positives = was flying when I was on it... looking at Strava segments, may have broken top 20 without mistakes and crashes.

Race report

Best race so far... felt like I could push and pedal when I wanted or needed to vs just surviving a stage with stopping of dying of exhaustion. Better cornering skills, more confidence to carry more speed through features. Hope to build on this one.

Distance: Intermediate Men

Date: May 19, 2019

Race report

Tough race, physically demanding, very long stages, brutal final climb. Just happy to finish and not have to stop mid stage like I did in 2018. One minor off on each stage slowed me down. All said and done, pretty happy with result, good improvements from last year. Toughest of the year, gets easier from here.

Race report

Best race so far. Won stages 1, 2, & 3 and was 30 seconds ahead, but lost almost all of it on the longer & pedally stage 4, also had a little crash (which I blame on a screaming marshal) and a flat!. Was tied for the lead going into stage 6, then had a minor crash which I blame on a squid, ultimately putting me down to 4th and just 3 seconds off 1st! Lesson learnt - stay focused, every second really does count.

Race report

Good race, hot, dry, lots of pedaling. Fitness didn't feel the best, whether it was being under-prepared or the heat, not sure. Had a flat about a 3rd of the way into the first stage which dropped me down. Overall considering the heat and the flat, performed well.

Better fitness than Nanaimo, shorter overall race but with more stages, was more prepared = much better result.

1st race!! Poor fitness, couldn't even finish a couple of the stages without having to stop and rest. Also crashed twice on the first stage. Also probably picked the hardest and longest of the series for my first race... haha!
