I would consider my times slow. I don't have any other race pace times...I am usually in for the long slow ride. Best way to see where you stack up is hit up a race and start in the beginner cats. When you register just tell them it's your first race and most often they will help you through the easy process.
Summertime brings on the "Dirt Crits" at Castlewood every Thursday evening. Great way to race and build endurance for the longer races. The dirt crits are short sprint like races, great fun and always a good time.
PS>..This rain will make the trails 100% better as long as the horse traffic is kept away until it's dry.
The rain has been pretty light so the trails will be ready to rock in a day or so.
- Gitchasum Clipless pedals - I am sure if you post up someone on the board may have an old set they would probalby give ya....Greensfelder race in a couple weeks will be a good starter for ya, and I am sure the GORC crew will make ya feel welcome. Hit up a workday if you have time, that's the best way to get to know the trails.
