Santa Ynez pre-ride

Posted on

Woke up early saturday am and met up with 1 of my new teamates to pre-ride the course. Was really cool as he had raced there before so he knew the course well.

Up the first climb it was steep and I was trying to take it easy the day before the race, fun tight switch backs and had 1 really steep turn!

up a lill more and we passed the DHers at the starting house, man I used to be one of those guys making fun of me and spandex 🙂

Across the top and down a fun off camber desecent, lots of off chamber. Hit the 2nd climb not a bad one fire road that turned to single track steep at times but not bad at the top of this one we ran into a few locals (cows….) we continued up and at the next corner there were cows but these ones had horns…. sketchy…. around the next corner I look up the hill to my right and there is a HUGE cow freeked out running along side of us…. that thing was freaked! and I was a lill too 🙂

down a lill and up the last climb this was wasn’t bad at all middle ring and keep it moving. Down a couple long switch backs and ripped the fire road back 🙂

I played alill around the start thinking of what gear I wanted to start in and what the enterance to the single track was like.

Good ride was glad to have a giude!
