    What? You're under 50 @slomosapien ? :unsure:
    Maybe the 50+ group is slower, and I have a shot at making podium :cautious:

    Congrats! :thumbsup:

    Yeah JJ. The screen name never worked for me. I think its time for an upgrade. Along with an upgrade from that dumazz "Moto" pic you have as an avatar on a "premiere" SoCal MTB site. :)
    Joshing aside major congrats on your achievement brothah!

    "Hard Enduro", AKA mountain biking where you enjoy the entire ride, not finding the climbs, the fireroads, nor the descents displeasurable. :D

    Trying to remember the times I didn't enjoy a descent:
    - when my bike felt like it was falling apart and brakes were failing to work, despite me clamping down with an increasing number of fingers
    - when I followed a group being led by someone just exploring trails mostly unknowing of their recent condition, that was overgrown with brush

    Same deal when I didn't enjoy the climbs, when my bike just wasn't functioning, such as skipping gears under torque, or riding through sharp/harmful stuff that you don't want touching you if you can help it.

    I believe he was actually faster around this time last year. I had to get him to stop going all out at the start of the ride, since I was concerned that some needed a warm-up, to not blow-up and suffer the rest of the ride. He had a crash and injury recently, and I'm surprised he's getting these kind of results, unless he's actually sandbagging (Sport class with a Scalpel Si)? All I know is, I have questions, based on this evidence, before I show any reaction (whether it's being impressed or whatever). :D

    JJ is not quite enough to satisfy xenforo. You need at least 3 letters.
    How about Jesse James, The Pool Guy, or Captain Chlorine? Ha ha!

    That sounds like a rule #1 violation...

    I think the "hard enduro" is referring to the dirt bike, not the MTB. But with his new MTB, maybe we can change that?
