The New York State MTB Series finished up this past Sunday with the series finale, Riedlbauer’s Round Top Rally. The Riedlbauer course is a fun course with a lot of flowing singletrack and moderate climbing…well for a geared bike. Of course, I was racing singlespeed for the series, so a little bit of the climbing was hike-a-bike for me. Sunday’s field was a bit bigger than the previous two races. With 2nd place locked up for the overall, and very unlikely to take over 1st, I decided to just go out, ride safe and have a fun mountain bike ride. And that is what I did.
The end result was a 5th place finish in the series finale and 2nd place overall Cat 2 Singlespeed.
