Kevin Aiello races "New Mob"

 
 
February 23, 2010 -  Five Ten    
 

"This past weekend I attended the "New Mob" race in Boulder City, Nevada, racing pro downhill.  I arrived to another weekend of great weather, a phenomenal track, and great racing, with a best of two run format.  My practice runs were a little frustrating as I flatted multiple times on the sharp rocks of Bootleg, Canyon.  So I ramped my tire pressure up to
50 psi and went with the set it and forget it method and didn't have to stress on flats.  



After getting a few more clean practice runs in, I was ready to put together a solid racerun.  I have had a frustrating streak of unfinished race runs recently due to mechanicals, punctures, and crashes, so I was concentrating on putting a run together and finishing a finals run.  My first run was going well until I hit a jump, and got blown off track in the air.  Sitting in 4th after the first run, I knew what I had to do to improve on my first runs time.  Run 2 went well as I hit all my lines and took 8 seconds off my first run.  I finished in third place overall.  



The pro podium consisted of Mitch Ropelato in first (specialized), Logan Binggeli in second (KHS), Me in third, David K in fourth (intense/ ODI), and Chris Heath in fifth (KHS).



Overall it was an awesome weekend of racing with a stacked feild of riders and one
of the best tracks I have ever ridden. I would like to thank all my
sponsors for their continued support including FiveTen® Shoes"
