Charlotte Winter Short Track Series

Race Preview: Charlotte Winter Short Track #2

After my break through 4th place finish last week I seem to be a marked woman going into this race. Reasons being marked sucks I had a power test yesterday, which (to be explained at another time) wrecks your legs completely. Several girls will not be there today that I was using for pacing last week. Several friends are coming out, hopefully I don’t crash…

SRAM XX1 Review

Preview: SRAM XX1 MTB Drivetrain

When my work started “pre-selling” the new XX1 group I knew this is what I had to have for my new hardtail race machine.

Race Report: Winter Short Track #1

Going into the first race of the Charlotte Winter Short Track series I was nervous and unsure. How shell’ed off the back would I get? Would I clog up the berms for the fast single speed boys that needed to blow past me? The morning routine was off. I’m not used to racing in the afternoons, so I was up and “Ready” about 3 hours…

Charlotte Winter Short Track Series

Race Preview: Charlotte Winter Short Track #1

Your first of a season are always nerve wracking. First group ride. First wreck. First long ride and so on. First are scary for the unknown and for the stress you put on yourself. Tomorrow is my first race of 2013. The first race of the Charlotte Winter Short Track Series. A training race if you could call it that. A 45 minute interval set…
