Shot up to CT, HVVC Southington, instead. Good course, fast + fun. Accident at the start, poor fellow broke his ?collarbone?
Placed ninth, wish I was feeling better. I was screwing around on my bike yesterday evening and pulled my thigh muscle, barriers+ run-ups were painfull.

How 'bout you?
Are you heading out to Bridgeton NJ on sunday 11/02?
Or Augusta NJ Sat 11/01? I'll pull a double header.

cool, I did that one last year, I like the course also, a couple of people ate it last year on the bridge crossing and slammed in to the wooden railings, they were hurt pretty bad !! Good result, top 10 is great.

Bridgeton is my team's race so YES, I'll be there.
accident just after start this year alsobuffalosorrow

Poor fellow fell on the B-ball court, broke his ?collarbone?. Officials warned us about the slippery courts, narrow first bridge and wider second one. It has drizzled early on, so the course was lightly damp, but slippery. I rarely stick my foot out on the wrap -arounds, but there were a few off-canter turns that riders were slipping off course.
Fast race and short climbs, the only thing that slowed me down was the turn into the sand pit, where I had to dismount and run it, wish I had the spare time to practice pedaling through pre- race, just had enough time to learn the layout, not enough time to focus on the particulars.

re-Bridgeton, whats the course like, I've heard a fair amount of sand? otherwise see you there.
Bridgeton course is a good mixclimbo

the fire roads are sandy but usually packed down from rain etc. They get loose mostly in the corners. We do have a sand pit crossing that is rideable, maybe half ride it, half run it. We have stairs to run, a couple of barrier sets and some twisty off camber bits, a road section to start, some grassy sections and a small steep loose rocky climb. A bit of everything.
