Harbin Park Winter MTB Time Trial Series – Team Hungry Cycling
Harbin Park Winter MTB Time Trial Series

Harbin Park Winter MTB Time Trial Series

While half of the team was off at UC testing their lactating thresholds (only 1 girl went, not sure why the guys went), Jamie and I (James) went out to Harbin park today for a warm winter TT race thing – Harbin Park Riding Dirty TT Series. The weather gurus predicted we’d see temps in the high 30’s today. With a fresh pack of snow on the ground, we were hoping it would stay cold enough to not turn the park into a mud fest.

Back to the story. I took some warm-up laps around the parking lot for a while and should’ve pre-rode the trail a bit… This would’ve paid off because I cooked the first corner and laid the bike down and gave myself a nice show bath. I was thinking, “oh, this place is s l i p p e r y . . . I need to take it easy…” It took me about 10 minutes to figure out how hard you can push it in the corners before sliding out. I ended up with a pretty good “drifting” system that would allow me to hammer through the corners and floor it in the woops. Definitely a dicey fun-ass technical ride.

Jamie - Ridin' the last hill!!!

Jamie was one spot out of top 10 with an 11th on the day. I know he finished real strong riding the last hill that I had to walk / run. Upon completion, he tried to collapse, but I pushed him to warm down some. Jamie, top 10 is yours!

James - Huff'n

I was ecstatic about my 6th place considering I was on a SS (my only MTB). I might’ve been first in a SS class. No complaints, my first MTB race since 1994.

Friends and peeps:

Billiter - somethings not right.

Matt - Look at that Girvin with "J" swoop... Made around the last time I did a MTB race

Jason - on his 1988 rig. This guy is on my heavy recruitment list - bawler!


Thanks to Nick Dunn for the rad photos!!!
