ED's new weapon

It lives. It hung as a frame/fork for a few weeks, but he (I) could'nt stand it any longer. It had to be built. Just so happens it is in time for the 12 hours of Haw. We'll see what the weather brings- chance of rain in the forecast but we hope for the best! At any rate this bike is superbadasssweetdaddyjones- it's pretty light too..........

Those old dudes in the hundred mile series better watch out and they better not get fat and lazy over the winter cause IT has already started.........

Fall Fun Continued

Me and Ed kicked it a couple of weeks ago, Big South Fork style. Trails were of course perfect, some colors starting to do their thing, lovely Hoptoberfest courtesy of New Belgium, and 45 miles (mostly singletrack) of single-speeding goodness!
On another note, ED, super-stud boy went to the Ocho 8-hour race at Panther Creek last weekend and easily won the single-speed class AND had the second fastest time overall of everyone!! What a ride!! Next up the fall cornerstone race- 12 hour at Haw. Looks like Ed is flying solo, and I have a fast single-speed team lined up. Should be a fun day!

More on the best race of the year....

The pictures told the story of Shenandoah Mountain 100- awesome day, perfectly run event, great legs, super bike, and lots of laughs (afterwards). Even though Ed and I were it from K-town this year we went and represented better than ever. VIP campsite (by accident) our best Shenandoah race times ever, and hanging with the Kentucky crew made it a truly wonderful experience. Even though the year isn't over it would hard to top this- Durango probably would have come close but that is another (still kicking myself) story.............
Anyhoo, Ed did a 10:45 bettering his previous best by over an hour, and I rocked the SS for my best time ever of 9:13, over an hour faster as well and crushing my last years SS time of 10:55!!
Ed ended up 6th in the 50+ for the NUE series!!!!!!!!!!! We are still fired up and this just serves for motivation to go even better next year.

Meanwhile, we have still been riding lots with a few events still possible this fall. There is an 8 hour race at Panther Creek this week and of course the 12 hour at Haw is on Halloween. I have signed up for the Swank over in Pisgah which is a great event as well. Fall ride pictures abound-maybe in a few days..........
