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.

 Good to go...? Go for what?

 To go pro I hope... I'm becoming more and more disgusted with the general, and common, attitude of chauvinism on PB... It is expected from teenage boys, but eventually, you should be able to learn a little respect for the better half (ladies). Geesh.

 Yeah I was thinking the same thing "Is there a perverted undertone to that or does he mean something else"? That would explain my question rather than an outright "you're perverted" remark...It's just you really do see it alot, and it's just plain gross people.
