"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"
