I'm sure he's a nice guy and all, but if he thinks he can come into my hood, and start riding my trails...
This will not stand.
I need to take back my trails, with Phase One - Dirt Domination.
Because my preferred singletrack shredder is not yet ready to go, I needed to modify my Dekerf for trail duty.
I've slapped on a used set of Conti Mountain Kings featuring several missing lugs and tubeless sealant residue. I'll be going 2x9, with a crappy Exage front derailleur, mismatched RaceFace and Shimano rings, and a Grip Shift.
Even at my fittest, I don't think I could ever run with the guys that are fast on Strava right now, so I know this is a fool's errand. My goal though is to get Top 10 on at least one segment.
I should mention that I am not above creating my own segment to achieve this.
Stay tuned to this blog for results, and for Phase Two - Pavement Domination.
