2016 Mellow Johnny’s Class Mountain Bike Race – Flat Creek Crossing Ranch Race #2

My Cat2 40-49 mountain bike race video from the 2016 Mellow Johnny’s Classic held at Flat Creek Crossing Ranch near Johnson City, Texas.

The 2nd race of the Texas state 2016 series. Coming off of a 3rd place finish at Rocky Hill Ranch, I was gunning to improve my finishing position at a venue that suited my skills a bit more.

Flat Creek Crossing is a pretty technical trail, which suits me fine. There is one killer climb that is tough on me, but I had made a plan to deal with it.

I would get the hole shot and work on riding smoothly to build up some time before hitting the climb with the hopes that the leaders and I would top the climb together and be in the mix from there on out.

Things went well for the most part, but the leaders caught me before I reached the climb and then dropped me on the climb.

I was just starting to get back into the groove when I hit a rough spot and flatted out. You can find out more about the details of the race here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfY2U7d4xkM

Comfort is in 2 weeks so I’ll have to make a showing for that one!
