• Racing again....and the weapon of choice.

    This weekend is the PCP2P race. Course is looking to be tough with a distance of 75 miles and roughly 14,000 ft of climbing. The part that will make this event hard is the fact it is 90% singletrack. That is a lot and it will wear the body down fast if you burn your matches early. Because of the nature of the course....my selection of bike, tires and suspension where chosen based on similar events over the past 2 years.

    PCP2P Race BikeFS carbon bike all the way. Demanding course will require comfort to stay fresh for the 7-9 hour race.

    I swapped out the Durin Race 100 to the Durin SL 100. This gives me lighter weight fork and the subtraction of the manual lockout. With all the singletrack, the SL will stay activated until the course smooths out. Then it will stiffen up to provide a stiffer front end.

    PCP2P Race BikeTires will be the Race King 2.2 with Stan's. These tires roll super fast and have velcro hook up qualities in all conditions. The high volume of the 2.2 also offers much needed comfort....and is the most heavily used tire by the Topeak-Ergon team in the USA and EU.
