Boggs V

Posted: April 4th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: adventures | No Comments »

Yesterday John and I rode in Boggs V; the fifth running of the Boggs 8 hour race at Boggs Demonstration forest on Cobb Mountain. We participated in the 2 person single speed division and finished 5th place out of 6 entrants in our class. I rode my rigid curved seat tube 29er  (pictured) and John rode his blue 26in single speed; both made in the Roseland shop. The conditions were far rougher than last year but we still had a great time and were already looking forward to next year!
