Sign up. Early morning practice sessions began and finished with a soaker. Early on, it seemed as if some decisions needed to be made on tires. Shortly after the rain stopped, it became clear that the track wasn't going to let a little water keep the dust at bay. Logan Binggeli appears to be more focused than ever, and his speed is backing that up.
His race run was almost five seconds faster than his qualifying time. The dude is on a mission this year. Jill Kintner has largely stepped away from World Cup racing in , but she's clearly on form and was absolutely dominant all weekend long. The rain early on must've had the Bellingham native feeling right at home on Sunday. The rain would eventually desist by mid-morning, with clouds and mist hanging out on the mountain before eventually giving way to partially sunny skies and significant humidity.
There were some greasy spots to contend with initially, but eventually all of the roots and rocks would dry, and for the most part the race runs were significantly faster than the qualifiers. The exit from the first section of rocks and trees caught some riders out during the first few practice laps of the day. Southern California's Charlie Harrison didn't seem to mind a little grease in the morning. For a moment, many thought that the rain might have provided the course with some much needed tackiness.
One lift ride later, it became clear that the moisture simply wouldn't stick.

Max Morgan was fast throughout the weekend, but suffered a wreck during his race run. He has the form to put another Pro GRT win on his resume this season. Mike Day was among the scores of riders making the trip across the country to race in New Jersey. The BMX legend continues to prove that crossover is not only possible, but natural.
The Californian would finish 1 second shy of a podium place. Speaking of legends: Missy Giove. She should be good to race for the next Pro GRT round and will very much be in contention for the top spot when the time comes. Speaking of even more legends, Bryn Atkinson was on hand with a combination of speed and fluidity that no one else can touch.
His race run would be six seconds quicker than his qualifier and put him in the hot seat for most of the final third of the elite men's race.

This was a really fun weekend. The turnout was good, the pits were full, and it felt like proper racing again in North America.

The Castelli Series Kicks Off and the NYC Metro Showdown — To Be Determined Journal
Race Number 2 of the Day: NYC Metro Showdown My affinity for double header race-days has drawn some criticism from the team of late, and considering they rarely, alright never, amount to much by way of results, perhaps the criticism is justified. Park racing is not perfect.
We try our best to predict and hedge against wild cards, but there are always going to be incidents. Saturday's race promoter, Charlie Issendorf, made no mistake in relying upon the historical time splits of the masters field. Race dynamics are a thing. A bike racer races to win, not to be fast.
If that means letting tactics play out at the expense of setting a new second power record in a race, so be it. These are examples of the first wide range 1x mountain bikes with titanium chain guides to prevent derailment. Wide range freewheels were not available, so Cunningham made his own by machining and silver-brazing cogs as necessary. Rear derailleurs were modified to work with the wider ratios. Inexpensive to manufacture and called the Unicrown, it was widely used in early production mountain bikes.

The Ground Control, named by Jacquie Phelan, was the first mountain bike specific tire producing a quantum leap in performance. More Ground Control tires have been sold than any other. Cunningham invented the Grease Guard Bearing System, which allows bicyclists to completely flush bicycle bearings with clean grease in seconds, displacing the water and abrasives that inevitably get past seals.
