    Norcal Mens A Barrier videos bunny hopping

    hey there folks, i raced today at Granite Bay mens C and stayed around to watch the mens A race. I got some video of the top two guys duking it out. Ones the singlespeed national champ the other a former pro mtb. ie the bunny hopping.

    edit: the video was not sped up or anything, thats really how fast they went through.

    i got more videos but this will do for now...

    Looks like the guy doing the dismount/remount is getting away faster than the bunny hopper. - TF

    I agree the guy dismounting looks to be the faster he was probably using more energy in the long run but faster through the barriers.

    I don't think he would have had a problem with higher barriers but the barriers are at least 12 cm too short.
    rule 5A10 - ... must be 40 cm high...

    Rich led for most of the race then Jason caught and pulled away in the last two(?) laps. When I drove home after about ten miles I passed Rich either riding home or putting in more time on the singlespeed...

    No, just the one I have to live with...

    after the fact (of a crash and injury)! After I left a lot of blood at Folsom Point (Sac #3)and she came and picked me up from emergency, she wasn't too happy when the first thing I said was that I should be able to race in two weeks. She asked that I get clearance from the doc that a crash wouldn't split it open again, of course, the doc said it would and asked for me to wait one more week. For the good of my marriage I waited through this weekend...At least I rode my road bike this weekend...

    A road ride ,or a mountain bike ride. on a nice fall day. can't be beat. cycloX for me is so intense that sometimes on about the third lap I'm wishing that I was on a nice winding relaxing road. The feeling at the end of a tough race though is incredible as well.

    OK you "way" Norcal riders. Looks like I'm at Condon Park for C's on 10/30 since I'll be in Roseville for a Halloween party. How's that course?

    Lots of climbing, loamy

    and quick descents. MTB friendly course. They had a triple barrier up hill last year, and then a very fast double barrier. There's also one short pavement section (it's a lil longer on the start which is uphill).

    Very very fun course.

    Well, you can send it directly to me, but if you post it here I'll never be able to show my face at a NorCal race again - I don't exactly get through the barriers like Rich Maile.

    Condon Park was really fun last year, lots of up & down hill, tight turns in pine needles and manzanita, a couple of near-vertical drops and matching runups. Fun! I'm bummed I can't go 'cause I'll be in Colorado.
