First Mountain Bike Race of 2014 / Decorah, Iowa MTB Time Trial

Kicking off the 2014 Mountain Bike Race season. The Decorah, Iowa, "Mountain Bike Time Trial Race".

Jeff Hall and I have traveled to Decorah, Iowa many Aprils' in the past, but it has been about 6 years since we have been there. I have been known to race a few of these time trial mountain bike races in the past. The race has been the kick off to many race seasons. The weather can be a factor, rain or snow while the race is on. The Decorah mountain bike group is an awesome collection of good people. These are some of the best trails that I have ridden. It is not for the faint of heart, steep climbs and fast rocky descents. These are good mountain bike trails!
 This is the start of the Time Trial for Jeff. Ron Moffet is the promoter and bike starter and all around great guys. I have known Ron for over 25 years and he is one of the good guys of mountain biking!
 Jeff Hall is rocking and rolling on his way to a course record and a $500 reward for breaking the 49 minute time. Jeff finished with a 47 minute and 14 second time, almost 2 minutes ahead of 2nd place.

 This was the "crowd" and cheering section in the middle of the woods. Reminded me of the World Cup Race in Offenburg, Germany, except there was about 16,000 fans in Germany. These guys and gals here at Decorah were awesome, they even fed me a brat.

Ride On!!
