Wow, last night will go down in The Underground Super D’s three year series as the biggest gong show so far. Climbing up the tip track to the start at the radar dome Mark and I rode out of sun and into dense low cloud. Twenty people had ponied up for the start, including Tim (T Rex) Wilding, with his TallBoy fresh of his second place at the Huka XL. As everyone guessed the infamous Red Rocks track was the course, its been at least four years since I last rode it and that thing is still as scary as ever. Richard Leacock and the Giant Iguana took the win again (12:30), followed closely by T Rex (12:50) and Ryan from Bicycle in third (12:52). Leif lost a chain, Banga lost a chain and a pedal, Mark got lost and Mariska and Cowboy DNF’d and had us about to call out search and rescue when they rolled over the finish line about an hour after starting! Next week it’s Mirimar but I’ll bring the details on Tuesday next week.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
