getting ready for Transylvania

This coming Saturday we're traveling to central PA for the Translyvania Epic mountain bike stage race.

Dave Cormier and I have been trying to get some long rides (4+ hrs) in the past few weekends. So far, with great success.

This past weekend we explored Case Mountain area and Gay City State Park for 4.5hours. I felt pretty good.

Turns out I did get three punctures in my tires but Stan's Tire Sealant kept me rolling and I only stopped once or twice to put a small amount of additional air in the tires. These tires are quite old and the sidewalls are starting to deteriorate.

All things considered. I think we're ready for Transylvania. We'll see what happens on Sunday.

EDIT: I did replace these tires with a brand new set of Crossmarks for the event.

During the event, you can keep tabs on us through their website or facebook page.

You are going to put on new(er) tires, right?

I guess I missed that minute detail.

Yes, I have a set of new Crossmarks that I put on last night.
