12 Hours of GEARS

I participated in the first Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series (WEMS) race of the season -- the 12 Hours of GEARS -- at the New Fane trails near Kewaskum with Stud Weasil & the Damm Swell Guys. Our team consisted of Mike Skurek, Steve Loos, John Lanser and I. Each of us rode two laps, giving the other three a layoff of six laps. I completed eight laps, each just shy of 5 miles in length. My lap times were consistently in the mid 21-minute range (21:32, 21:08, 21:37. 21:37, 21:31, 21:49, 21:40, 22:10).

This was the second year I've participated in this event. Both times it has proven to be lots of fun (view the photos). There are seven more events in the WEMS series. You might want to check one out:
