Long Pine Classic




Great event and course today at Long Pine, many thanks to the promotors and helpers. Chuck was first MBM rider (that I saw) to the top of Canada Hollow climb during the 22 mile expert race and Trish was only a few minutes behind. Chuck had a strong showing and it was fun heckling (for motivation of course)him up the hill . Trish was also strong and in 7th place going up Hollow. The 15 mile sport course was a blast but in retrospect I should have done the "Full Pull" as Larry would say. Larry used the word sandbagging as I topped the second climb which I took as a compliment and Seeber asked me why I was riding with the children after my race. My 10th place finish confirmed I was in the correct group although I wish the sport loop was longer. Felt better in the closing miles than in the beginning. Did not stay to see the final results of the expert race, hopefully someone will post.

Dona, Witter and Seeber all looked like they could do another lap. Maybe it was the jerseys?
