Tinton Super D, Five-0 Flavors & Knife Blade Rock N Roll

Harrison Tuber approved!
5th Annual Tinton Trail Time Trials went down June 20th with 91 riders doing the 6 mile Super D course.
There were loads of riders in our two favorite classes, Junior's Rock and of course Women's. Many of them first time racers! It was another perfect day for the event. The upper part of the course stayed dry all day the lower section received rain and hail, making for heads up riding.

Dave Olson 2004 Five-OooHhh!... Picking it up and riding away with it since!

Local pro fast guy Dave Olson and Fast Moma Petra Hansen won the Dash for Cash (expert) division. For Steer For Beer, Women's Open, and Juniors Rock, check it, RESULTS. Of course he had the shuttles running all day, pulled pork barbecued, Crow Peak Pile of Dirt micro beers, Kids RACE (the best races of the day), and awards/Ridge Rider Raffle (everyone wins)!

Below are some shot from a recent recon of the upper end of the Five-0 loop. Started in Spearfish Canyon up Iron Cr. Drainage and into Cardiac climb and Recovery Ridge where these shots were taken. Old Baldy west loop was looking just as fresh, down the Crangle Connection to Iron Cr. Lake Store to resupply.

The lake is just a half mile off the Five-O course below the Crangle Connection and before entering Taco Alley. When pre riding this unsupported it is almost a mandatory stop. Great camping at the lake and good access to trails!

Five-O trail can be tight but sometimes that is alright.

Knife Blade Rock N Roll July 10th, 35 mile point to point ride mostly on Centennial Trail. Hosted by Sturgis BAM committee, Bikes, Art, Music! Lots of entertainment and live music in Sturgis Park. There is also a mountain cross that will be sure to please the adrenalin thrill seekers. Great high speed ripping course for the year I did it. I expect that will go for this one as well.
Jake "the snake" Rau leading it out.
