Gregg Lasher had just bought his XC Mountain Bike earlier in the week, and he took 1st place in his first event, the three lap Cat2 M40-49 race. Gregg then joined Shawn Staples on the 4th and final lap of the Cat1 Single Speed race to provide much needed encouragement. This event was also Shawn’s first Single Speed race, and he was very competitive for the first ~half of the race, but then he discovered that riding all the hills out-of-the-saddle requires specific Single Speed training.
