Getting DIrty!!! Here's what Cedar Creek had to offer!

I still can't believe CarbonEdwards made the entire 7 mile loop on a dual purpose tire...

Here's what Cedar Creek offered TXORR hare scramble racers this past weekend. Sometimes is ticky super fast clay, sometimes the entire week before a race and makes things soggy....the life of racing scrambles!

That's the spot in my first lap where I saw 1st place in my class leave me, third place pass me...and so on. I'd still be in it if it weren't for Cote dragging me out.

This race series is great. There are so many friendly people there to help out a fellow racer.

it was a great race, and a very interesting challenge to say the least for me on the tire i was running. i believe that everyone should try it on my tire for the added challenge.

thanks for the props on finishing, i was a bit scared to start the race with that tire but i knew if Dean finished it, i could do it with a little adjustment to my riding style.

i did fall a few times due to traction loss and had to stop to catch my breath once for a few minutes, i believe i could have finished a few minutes quicker had i not stopped. i am really looking forward to the next one but i will probably show up with a new proper tire on the rear.

Shiloh Ridge....2 weekends away, you don't want to miss it...gonna be superb! This is probably the one of the top 3 properties we race in respect to elevation and pucker factor.

i suppose jeans would work fine if you don't have anything else but i'm sure i may just have some pants to fit you.
