so, yesterday was the test of metal MMX (2010) in squamish that i competed in for the first time. having only pre-rode two-thirds of the course, and never having done it before i wasn't too sure what to expect of myself for a time, so i seeded myself at the 4.5 hour mark and then just rode at what i thought was a reasonable pace.
at first you ride uphill through town before hitting the trailhead, and i was amazed at how many people I had passed before we hit the trail. it was a little bit ridiculous to think that all those people had seeded themselves ahead of me, since there were only a few people that wound up passing me the entire time.
then we got into the first single-track to double-track before jack's trail and it was SO slow, we were almost crawling, i was not impressed. when we finally made it to Jack's trail, there were parts that were ALMOST a dead stop, but a slow pace throughout (still unimpressed :D).
then there's a fire-road to dead-end loop and i passed some more people before the dead end loop, which was a MAJOR let down. complete stop at least five times while waiting for people to clear sections of trail.
Thankfully, by the time I made it to the Rock 'n' Roll climb I had passed quite a few people, and one guy was kind enough to assume that I was a better climber than him and let me pass. To say that this section of trail is much easier on Mika's bike would be an understatement. I think that partially because of all the rest breaks I got throughout the race up to this point, I was feeling super fresh still, and the lighter bike + granny gear let me just cruise up the trail. Then it was Ryan's Rip where I passed some more people on the sweet turns, into Rollercoaster.
On the one tricky part of rollercoaster the lady in front of me slipped a gear and caused quite a pile up, but i hoped off the bike, jumped over her and got out in the lead again :D And the highlight of the race - as I was cruising the last bermed corners before hitting the streets again I took the inside line and passed a couple of lycra's and some kid yelled out "YEAAAAAH BAGGIESSSS!!!" to me. I chuckled as I exited the trail.
My first time through the feed zone I just cruised on by feeling like I'd barely done a warm up.
9 mile hill was not fun. Having never ridden it before, I had little idea what to expect other than a lot of uphill. I was very delighted when I arrived at a feed station around mile 5, where I feasted on some oranges, bananas, gatorade and water. Then I continued my zip up the hill until about mile 7 when my cranks loosened themselves and fell off :| Luckily, the FSA Gravity Light cranks only need a 5mm allen key to repair, so I found the little bolt that had fallen out after some searching and put it back together. It actually wound up being a nice break, and since I was SUPER hungry at this point, I feasted on my nutella sandwhich. This definitely cost me some time in the race, and I got passed by some people here, but I welcomed the break from the climb.
Anyway, then I kept climbing, up and up and up and up, before finally reaching the Rip and the Plunge (which I'd heard so much about before hand). The rip was awesome, as there were so many slow people sticking to the beaten path, and I'd just pop over to the other side, manual through some puddles and splash them while cruising on :D :D :D
Then I hit the plunge, and it was total mayhem! Pretty much every single steep roller, skinny ladder, corner with rocks, roots or anything else I would watch someone yell, crash and freak out in front of me and then ride around or over them and on my way. It was ridiculous and hilarious.
Then I got to the feed zone for the second time and was feeling pretty good, other than my super sore bum (next year, chamois + softer seat), so I ate some more oranges, bananas and then my support team gave me half a large beer (bad idea) and I started off for crumpit woods.
The beer hit my stomach and pretty much instantly turned into gas, so I spent the majority of cardiac hill in crumpit woods running my bike up the hill and burping up the beer (note: this was not particularly enjoyable). The nice part of this was that by this time there was almost no one around me, so I just cruised through at my own speed. The last part of the race is a lot of downhill single track to multi-use path for the last couple clicks, and I just cruised along that and across the finish line at 4 hours and 35 minutes. Considering how awesome I felt when I finished, I think it's pretty safe to say that I could quite easily lose 30 minutes off this time by :
a) riding harder now that I know how to pace it
b) seeding in a quicker group to avoid being slowed so much at the start
c) not having this be the first bike ride on a new bike I built for Mika (to avoid bolts loosening and cranks falling off)
d) drinking more water (other than the 4 cups I put back at the feed zones, I only drank .75L out of my camel
Bohinj is an alpine valley and a municipality in the north-west of Slovenia, in the Julian Alps. It is recognisable by its periglacial lake, Lake Bohinj (Slovenian Bohinjsko jezero).
Some 20 km long and 5 km wide, Bohinj is the name given to the entire Sava Bohinjka basin southwest of Bled.
The valley consists of four regions; the Spodnja Dolina (Lower Valley), Zgornja Dolina (Upper Valley), Ukanska kotlina (Ukanc Basin), and Nomenjska kotlina (Nomenj Basin). It is bounded by Komarca on one end and Soteska, which is in fact a narrow canyon, at the other.
However, the municipality of Bohinj covers a much larger area than only the Bohinj Valley. The Lower Bohinj Mountain Range represents its southern border. The Sava river has carved a canyon between the Jelovica and Pokljuka plateaus in the east. To the north, Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain is also a part of the municipality.
Sava Bohinjka (which merges with Sava Dolinka into the Sava) begins when two rivers, the Jezernica and the Mostnica merge. The Mostnica comes from a valley called Voje, whereas the Jezrnica is a very short river that flows from Lake Bohinj. Many smaller streams flow into the lake. The largest of them, the Savica, emerges in Komarca as a large waterfall. The Savica Falls (Slap Savica) get most of the water from Crno Jezero (Black Lake) which is the largest in the Triglav Lakes Valley.
Bohinj began opening up for tourists years ago, with natural attractions being the biggest draw.
Bohinj has become a starting point for tourists for day trips, for walks on the trails that run throughout the valley, and for mountaineering and climbing tours. It is also associated with the nearby Bohinj Railway, which includes the Bohinj Tunnel.
In winter the valley becomes a winter sports centre for skiers, snowboarders, ice climbers, as well as ice skaters on Lake Bohinj. During the summer, Lake Bohinj is frequented by swimmers, and with the Sava Bohinjka River, kayakers and fishermen as well. Biking, trekking and climbing are also typical tourist activities in the area.
Bohinj with its ski resort Vogel and Kobla is a perfect destination for all snow fans. There are platny opportunities to ski free ride, enjoy on snow park and have a long run down to valley trough the slope "Zagarjev graben". The easiest way to book your hotel, apartment or holiday is to visit MountVacation/Vogel-Bohinj or to call local tourist office, where they will help you to find the right accommodation.
Lake Bohinj (Slovene: Bohinjsko jezero) is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. Lake Bohinj is located in the Bohinj municipality in the north-west of the country, and is inside Triglav National Park.
Lake Bohinj is 4.2 km long and 1 km at its maximum width. It is a glacial lake dammed by a moraine.
The largest of the streams that flow into the lake, the Savica River ("little Sava"), is fed from Crno jezero (Black Lake), the largest lake in the Triglav Lakes Valley.
The outflow is the Jezernica which merges with the Mostnica to form the Sava Bohinjka (which in turn merges with Sava Dolinka to become the Sava).
The area is associated with the legendary "Goldhorn (Zlatorog)", a white chamois with golden horns. A statue of the creature stands beside the lake.
