Chris Winn: Ramblings From The Road


23 October 2006

Expect the Expected. Rnd #1 National XC Series.

Not pretty.....and really not too much to say either... with almost 2 weeks of the bike with a post 24hr lung infection and on antibiotics, a solid ride was pretty much outta the question for the first round of the National series for this little black duck. Pretty much went backwards from the start as expected really on half a lung and that was all she wrote, riding around like a small child for the rest of the race not being able to get my hr past 150bpm and feelin' like someone had turned the dimmer switch down... Sweet course but, nice 8km loop of tighty singletrack, perfect for the ASR. Didn't plan for my forks to blow on the third lap and cease the usual stock standard bounce action, leaving me with about 10mm of non existent travel and some way harsh bottoming action out down the rock chutes for the last three laps....not to mention the fun trying to steer the thing... Ahh well, that's racing I guess and if that's the only mechanical problem I get all season then I guess that was a pretty good day to have the end still managed to roll over the line 20th and get some points at least. Major props to Captain Cannondale Lefty for taking out the big W in a tight sprint finish over a flyin' Coops, and much respect for Flemo filling the final spot on the box the day. Not much else to say really, other than...NEXT!!!! Over and out, your 99.9% qualified teacher....
