I know here in oregon the SS race is with the B's(sometimes not always), but a lot of A's do race the SS as well. Is it unreal to think I could be competitive in the SS cat in my second year? I've got three top tens in 7 races in the newbie class against mostly geared racers?
I didn't word that properly this is my first year, I'm just in love with this sport and looking forward to next season and not being a beginner. Thanks for the info and the response. I think i'll try a couple ss races just for the hell it.
I totally don't understand racing Single Speed racing in the dirt. I used to do this with my BMX bike and hated it. I ended up advancing to a geared mountain bike to help ride in these difficult terrain.
If you're going to do that you should consider riding your bike backwards at the same time. Sorry to anyone who I may have offended. By the way, I'm sure I'd get my ass kicked by them as well in a race. All though during a mountain bike race I did pass a SS guy who as I passed had is chain explode from the torque he was putting into it. Again, I had to question the idea of riding a SS bike like this.
Maybe it's a Trackie kind of thing......for the velodrome riders out there looking to get dirty in the off season.
^u might never understand it
