Man, almost 300 people yesterday at short track and not ONE post about how the race went? Where are those people at? They obviously don't visit this forum Sad



Conditions were perfect in the afternoon.

Give the races a shot - the lap times vary from mid 4 minutes to mid 6 minutes, so there will always be someone to race against.  Total race times from about 30 minutes for the easier divisions to 45 to 60 for the harder ones.

The course dries surprisingly fast.  Last week it poured the night before and by the afternoon it was pretty darn good.

Fun stuff!

Another fun weekend of short track in the books.  Despite practicing the "pro line" (I wish there was a better name for this" out of the woods roughly 5,000 times Saturday, I still psyched myself out and screwed it up in the race.

Otherwise, great trail conditions and some awesome racing, even in the AARP division.  I was proud to drop my lap times by 20 seconds.  Progress! (or dry trails).

It is embarrassing getting crushed by some dude on a rigid single speed wearing cutoff shorts and a tank top though.  Smiley

When is the next blog post, Rich?

I believe it was this dude "The Suffer Club" an up & coming YouTuber, rider & racer with a cool passion for doing this! Here's his channel, in which his coverage of WST Race 1 was pretty intense. (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links); He did some more recording & did a few interviews of the youth.

Wow, guy has some talent! He could do a recap interviewing people and this would be a full production race!

There's a huge "underground" mountain bike scene in Charlotte that just shows up to race on club built trails, keeps their trails (Dixie River, and BYT back in the day) to themselves and never posts on the board.†

Do what you like. Stop hating people for their riding habits and get back to hating them for their skin color, religion, politics, and sexual orientation.
