Today started off with some rain and fog, and then gradually warmed up and cleared a little. The rain created a bit of slippery mud on the rocks in the AM, but it quickly dried up and by race time the conditions were pretty excellent with mostly tacky dirt and only a few slick rocks. The course claimed more than a few flat tires, I saw this piece of torn up tube lying on the track at the bottom of the course. It could have been from a number of people that rode by on flats...
If you that haven't been to Plattekill before it's in the backwoods of New York. It's a great place, just a little bit small for those of you that are used to the bigger resorts.
16 year old Lauren Daney has been getting fast lately and is definitely someone to watch in the future. Look for an interview with her sometime soon.
