Racergirl Television Episode 17: 2012 Island Cup #1, Victoria, BC

This past weekend I did my FIRST RACE of 2012, christening the Superfly 100 with some sweet singletrack in my hometown. The Island Cup Series is a fun local race series that really brings cross country, downhill and Super D racing to all levels in a fun, low key and inclusive kind of way. Good times on a bike.

 

My training partner Jason Binab was participating in his first ever mountain bike race and, true to his gangsta roots, he took the win in Intermediate men. This instantly elevates him to Sandbagger status as he is no longer allowed to race in anything but Expert.

 

I also had a great day on the bike, taking the win in the Expert chicks category with local superstars Dawn Berg and cyclocross supermom Wendy Simms taking 2/3 respectively. All in all a lot of fun, I learned a lot about riding my new bike (which was the point of the race) and I never get to race anything this technical unless I trek to the Pisgah Stage Race so good times all around.

 

It seems the Chesty mount for my GoPro HD2 does not work with my stem slammed really low for aerodynamics so that camera angle on the trails sort of sucks. But you can get a good, hard look at the ground. Haha!

 

Enjoy. Next Island Cup is next weekend in Cobble Hill but Mel probably won’t be at that one since I think I am going to go run instead. We’ll see. That race really was a lot of fun.

I meant to post results at the end of the video but it looks like it got messed up… so read more if you want to find the results!
