Race Report: Triple Crown MTB Series - Glendora XC Grind at South Hills Park
I got 4th place today in the Expert Men 34 & under category. The young guys were fast! The racing was intense, the track super fun and the weather felt like summer. It’s always a fun time racing at South Hills Park. The short 3.2 miles course has about 600 ft of climbing per lap and single tracks that make it all worthwhile. We did 5 laps; My time was 1:31:12.
I had a big crash on lap 4 when I was about to lap a racer. There was kind of an A-line on the inside of a steep curve. Narrow & sketchy but, with the rubber side down, it was faster. I missed the entry on that lap and ended up in the bushes. Fortunately I was able to continue and finish.
The next and last race of the Triple Crown series is in 3 weeks. See the calendar HERE.
