    Its that time of year , The Team Bums Time trial.

    woke up to it snowing , I guess Yesterday the lake was totally clear of Ice, well by the time it was race time , had a good 2 new inches of snow to make things interesting.

    the course entered and exited the Ice three times, had all things to make it a challenging course. Ice , rocks, sand, single track , a small climb tight tight turns , fun, we would do three laps agains the clock .

    Me looking good on my first lap



    Peter on his first lap



    Me on the Hump



    on the sandy boat ramp



    Peter on the boat ramp



    from the ice up 3 step back trail



    if you got out of the track the tires would get squarily as peter demo's




    Peters Game face



    29er single speed ridgid




    Me exiting the ice .






    Peter doing the same




    getting off the Ice , but the guy in front has a small problem, fortunately it is last lap



    close up of the problem




    Hmm there was some rocks, as we got back on the ice



    and this was the 3rd entry to the Ice



    the downhill track




    Scott our host and race course designed on an ice buckle ( with 2 others behind him on the ice )



    BadDNA on the Hump



    BadDNA on a straight away




    rocks on the Shore




    exiting the ice



    My daughter wanted to have some fun too, so she grabbed Peters bike after he was done , and took it for a spin on the ice.




    I'm not sure I would have trusted a Suburban on the ice.



    and the results.



    Lots of fun was Had !!!

    I got that flat on my second lap and had to do the entire last lap with it! Great day on the lake. You guys should do some of the spring TT's!

    (the winner was John B. running an rigid 29er SS w studs.)

    Just joined Ridemonkey today. Thanks MMcg for the tip. Just browsing around and look what I find, a report on the Team Bums Ice TT! Sure was a fun day. Scott Nelson does a great job and deserves all the credit for putting it on.

    Now on to my 29er handicap. Whats this all about? They really shine in bad conditions. BTW, I like the 29er format but I'm going to try a 27.5 combo next. Hey Splat, don't knock it unless you have completely thrashed them on your favorite trails. You may just be surprised with how much fun :busted:alternative wheel sizes can be......

    Thanks!!! And thanks to Splat too for his awesome pictures. Our club had many full out ice races back in early 90's and they were always a blast. Simply want to bring back the old school- low key -high fun -xc events mountain biking should be all about. Starting last year-- I went with the TT format to accomodate more people and riders loved it. Plan on many more years of this event. Food, music, fire pit, bikes on ice! What could be better? Look to join us for more slippery (free) racing in 2009. Check out our 2008 Spring and Fall TT series too. Over 21 weeks of racing/training at seven entirely different central MA courses.
