Thanks! It gets a little crazy in those things. Would have been up a lot quicker if people didn't keep running into me.

Speaking of trials bikes, this was my project for this evening. This at the recommendation of some of the faster "B" class guys in the afternoon race, they seem to swear buy them.

And I replaced my Kenda Southwick II sand tire with something a little more appropriate for the mountains:

I'll admit, those TireBalls are nice when it comes to having to not think about flats, but I think I'm starting to miss tubes when it comes to changing tires.

The next race is the infamous "Flat Rock" this coming Sunday. It's only infamous because last year it was a real tough course, and 12 inches of rain in the days prior sure made it even more interesting. I'm hoping for good weather this time around.
