Team Bikeman - Race Reports

I was told once that Blue Mountain in Peekskill was the definition of East Coast technical trails, which really doesn’t say a lot since I really haven’t ridden all over the country, but the trails are indeed technical. Trails are really rough in sections and it’s hard for me to visualize good lines or even lines at all.

Team Bikeman - Race Reports

Written by Yohsuke Takakura Friday, 29 April 2016 00:00

I got a chance do 3 laps in this course the Sunday before the race which was good since this course has some rock gardens and some really rocky descents. I raced here last year and to my surprise, my times were way slower during my pre-ride, even during my “hot lap”. The course is pretty much the same as the year before but it seems like some sections got even rougher than last year. The course starts with a good dirt road climb with the finish line on top of it. Then you get into a double track descent and after that it is pretty much all single track. Even the climbs are technical and there are some rock gardens. I always feel like super rocky courses don’t favor me.
