Race: On the Rocks @ French Creek MTB race
Location: Birdsboro, PA
Rider(s): Nicole LaGorga
I was stressed leading up to this particular race because I was unfamiliar with the course and I knew it was hilly and technical and my tubeless front tire was not holding air so I had to pop a tube in and just hope for the best. When I preroad the begining of the race I regretted registering. I'm not a risk taker until I'm on a mountain bike, and I knew I'd be taking a lot of risks today so I promised myself to ride smart. The climbing up on rocks was very difficult and the tube was bouncing around like crazy the entire race. I was able to stay up front the entire lead out and up the first rocky rooty insane climb. I made good enough time on the flats and rocky downs to keep me off the front. I bounced. I fell. I ran a few times. It rained. The rocks were slippy as all heck. And in the end- I won.
