If you have been reading along, you know that I stayed in Snowshoe after Scott left with the van and trailer, to do a week of meetings there with the product development group from work, and to ride mountain bikes. That all came off really well, and we had a bunch of great meetings. But more important than that, I had 6 days of riding 2 wheelers. Including, 2 days of long XC riding and 2 days of DH riding on the lift served.
It was great! I had a great time, and Snowshoe is a great place for mountain bike riding. The same terrain that made the GNCC race so tough, makes for really fun MTB terrain. Tough, but really really fun.
I have gathered up a bunch of parts to make my bike ready for the next GNCC. I have to ship all those out to meet up with the van, to make it up to Unadilla. Saturday before the race will be a lot of hours of working on the bike.
– chain + sprockets
– brake pads
– clutch plates + springs + clutch rod + and clevis arm
– piston + rings
lots of day before work.
In the mean time, I found this little video from the Snowshoe GNCC race. enjoy!
