Yep, pretty sure I'm in on it now. My main thing is I'm out of shape. :( Need to start working on that. Plan currently is to just treat it like a day of riding, and not worry about what place I'm in or anything. If I get tired, stop and take a break, or whatever.
I took a bunch of photos at a hare scramble this weekend, was good times, but man even the really in shape dudes were BURNT by an hour or so, field really thinned out by then and some of the dudes coming through my corner were just "unggngn no more". So me being out of shape has me concerned for this weekend. But if I end up wearing out and coming back to the pits with my tail between my legs, so it goes.
Couple of shots from this weekend...
This was after I helped this guy get his bike back up from the 3-4 foot ledge it dropped off and landed upside down on.
Good corner to work, lots of biffs.
Big field of bikes for sure.
edit: Also any tips for riding with faster riders? I don't want to slow anyone down but everyone is going to be on the course at the same time. Most people I've ridden with have been like 5-7 people.
