PICK YOUR POISON~GM UPDATE

New GrassMoots Team member Tab Tollett pilots his Moots

We’ve got a new shop in Chattanooga, TN (SUCK CREEK CYCLE) and to go along with the new shop we have a new GrassMoots Team member in Chattanooga as well. ¬†Meet Tab Tollett…..

To get things rolling, Tab writes about PICK YOUR POISON XC

So today I took the Moots YBB out for a 24 mile cross country race. I skipped the masters race as it was only 16 miles. I needed to beat my legs up a little and get in an additional lap. Yesterday I did a 4.5 hour single track training ride. It’s time to start dialing up the miles for the Cohutta 100 next month. So this weekend I decided to double up and get in some intensity with the cross country race. I’m not a big fan of cross-country races as I like the longer endurance races between 50-100 miles. Anyways, this Sunday morning I awoke early. An hour earlier than my biological clock was used to due to daylight savings time going into effect. The race started off typically fast on and uphill rise onto a small section of pavement where it quickly funneled into a single track lap of fast twisty rolling terrain with a few short punchy climbs. Each lap was an eight mile trek through the Booker T Washington state park. At the end of the race I finished the open class mid pack as I expected. It was a fun way to spend a Sunday morning. The YBB was as always a pleasure to ride and I’m looking forward to dialing up the miles in preparation for the Cohutta 100 next month.
