Stage 1 – Bald Eagle TT
TT 15miles, 1600 ft climbing , Feed at 15miles start/finish
Transylvania Epic stage 1
– TT stage 15 miles . Rocky with a few road sections to utilize my TT skin suit and hardtail .
– flats foiled a big result … Well that and lack of easy coast rocks skills
– 9 min back and ~15th … Long week so see what I can climb back
Our Campsite for the week at cup scout camp. Nice having same spot each week and the scouts have it figured out with the tent in side a tent raised off the ground .
Gear for the trip, well not all of it but most of the riding stuff. I tried to focus on getting everything into bags (e.g. arm warmers in a bag, vest/jackets in a bag, short in a bag etc.) so I don’t have to think each morning.
=> key things I think I will need are moist wipes (for remote stages to keep ‘things’ clean)
=> detergent to do laundry to ensure enough clothes and prevent bad smells/bad stains (white!!!)
=> spare wheels … the rocky nature of this event is going to challeng my smooth hardtail riding for sure.
