Anyone going to this GNCC this coming Sunday?

I have enjoyed it in the past, and look for this weekend to be none different.

:thumbsup:

GyroRon, which class you running big boy?

I'll be getting brutalized in the Sportsman B - as usual.

There will be a group of Turtles racing together in the Trail Rider class who will be glad to pay you for a pic of us coming off the starting line!

Great bunch of guys... you should stop over and call us stoopid.

Well I didn't like it too much...

Not to make a ton of excuses, but I mounted up a Maxxis IT rear tire, and ran it at 12psi and did not like the traction it was supposed to have given me ( the bike felt like it had less side to side traction in the rear end and no real advantage in the corners over my usual trials tire ) I also didn't like the harsher ride the knobbie gave me.

I also screwed up by switching out my EE tall soft seat for the hard as a plank of wood stocker, and my ass was stinging by lap two.

My suspension just couldn't keep up with all the little bumps and chop on the trails. I think I felt every last rock, root, bump, and hump in the handlebars.... And I got Flexx bars!!!

Icing on the cake was stopping at McDonalds and getting a " Big Breakfast " on the way to the track. Pancakes and syrup = impending bowel movement, and I shoulda known better than to eat that before a race, but I ate it anyway. As I made my way to the starting line I could feel it hitting me hard and it was tempting to stop by a portajohn, but I knew it would probably take awhile and I would probably feel even worse afterwards, so I elected to ride on and go later. Bad decision....

Then there was the dust! On some of those wide open areas, the dust was so thick I just waved all the yahoos around me.... no sence in riding blind, silly fast into a stump or another rider, especially since I knew it was impossible to do well in my class in the first place with all the higher level riders I was riding against.

So all of that outta the way, I am still glad I went and I did have fun. The course would have been more up my alley if I had less issues to deal with.

Will be working on my lame ass video ( get to see me fly over the bars again near the start ) and should have something up in a day or two

Congrats to Greg for nearly winning his class and the overall. Dave good job too
