My 5yr Bi-Lat Anniversary
« on: December 10, 2017, 11:57:16 PM »
I seem to only read this forum on my anniversary! I guess that's a good thing.


Finished off last season on the MTB in 3rd Cat 3 50+. I've ridden 2,077 mi and climbed 129K Ft this year and will be over 7,000 mi total soon on the MTB post Bi Lat. I'll be moving to Cat 2, new goal is to be mid pack.


Still riding and racing the dirt bike too, scored a couple 2nds, 3rds and 4th place finishes last year but my consistency earned me 1st in Over 50A for the season. This coming year has seen a bunch of faster guys join the 50 class so I'll be lucky to be in top 5.


I seem to enjoy the MTB over the dirt bike as I can still improve on the MTB, I've topped out on the dirt bike.


Love being on two wheels!

Six year Anniversary this week!
Just shy of 10,000 miles on the MTB since the Bi-Lat!
Racing Over 50 Cat 2 MBAA in 2019.
Signed up for a team race at the 24hr Tour of the Old Pueblo Feb 2019.
Still riding the KTM, backed off racing it as MTB is my priority in 2019.
Hips are strong, legs have noticeably gained muscle mass, all is well!

I've had a couple buddies do the 24 hour of Old Pueblo. Heard it's a great time but watch out for the Cholla!
