Cohutta 100

2011 Hundo #25

Coming from Michigan where winter wont quit this year, today's Cohutta 100 weather was spectacular! Blue skies, 80 degrees, and dry dirt under the wheels felt awesome.

The Race: I might need to check my clock on my bike computer. The race started at 6:56 by my clock and I'd only arrived about a minute before, whew. Pace seemed way higher to me this year rolling from the start and I quickly felt like my tires were flat. It took a while but I finally found my groove by about mile 20 and from there I felt pretty good. I ended up rolling with Kuhncapi for about 35 miles which was nice. Greg fell off the lead group with flatting rear tire . He actually ended up winning an award for the most flat tires on the day. Of course, by the end, everyone gets tired and so that finish line looked glorious. I ended up 3rd in Masters behind Doug Andrews from California and my Trek 29er Crew teammate Roger Masse. Hopefully I ride closer to these guys at my next NUE race. I was pretty far off today.


Fancy Number Plates!

The Superfly performed flawlessly today.

Yeah, there has been some recent talks about Hermitman's big honkin tires, even some consideration to stray from the normal kit. Thanks for the note on the Rocket Rons. They look Hermitman friendly. I also kinda like that with a little black and white paint I could be riding on Rocket Robs.

Thanks Craig! :-)
