Stage 1 Blog: Karen Potter (Epic Brewing/MTBracenews.com)

I arrived at the Seven Springs Boy Scout Camp Saturday afternoon in the midst of some light rain but with threatening skies still looming.  I set up camp (tenting this year) which took some time to get organized.  It did start to rain pretty good again so I bagged the idea of riding despite it being a good idea to spin out my legs after a 7 hour drive from Massachusetts.  There will be plenty of riding all week and from the looks of the forecast, plenty of wet, muddy riding.  I didnít care to get in one extra muddy ride just to Ďloosení up...plenty of time on Sunday.

The anxiety built all day waiting for my 3:36 time trial start.  I went into State College and got some coffee and read for a while, came back to camp around noon and started to make sure everything was all set to go. The forecast called for thunderstorms sometime after noon, nothing had transpired yet but the air was thick and the temps pretty warm. 

I rode the beginning section of the time trial that traverses through the boy scout campground.  I ran into some of my fellow competitors, Sarah Kaufman, Cheryl Sornson and Kristin Gavin.  They had taken a wrong turn which I had missed on my first go through of the course as well.  We made a point of seeing the turn get taped off which they did as it was a pretty easy turn to miss. 

Then more waiting, catching up with other racers.  The countdown and Iím off.  I was the  9th women of 13 to go off with some formidable opponents behind me.  I feel like my training has been a bit off this spring so I wasnít sure what to expect out there against this talented field.  I had won the time trial last year (against another very talented field) but that wouldnít be the case this year.  I was first caught by Sue Haywood who started a minute after me and Kristin Gavin caught up with us too.  We went back and forth a bit on the dirt road section with Sue making it into the singletrack ahead of me.

Not too long after that I could see Cheryl gaining.  Sue pulled away in the singletrack and put the hammer down and Cheryl rode by a little while later in strong pursuit.  I just tried to keep in my zone and ride steady and not far out of my comfort zone.  I felt pretty good, not quite as on fire as last year but not bad.  There was a long singletrack climb that was a bit soft and slick although thankfully the rain had held off and the trails seemed to dry out fairly well.  While I like the heat and humidity, the air felt really thick. 

I just tried to keep in mind we have 6 more tough days of racing ahead of us and no need to go blow it all today. 


I eventually got caught by some of the open menís field on the fun singletrack section about 2/3rd the way through the time trial.  I had to pull over for a train of four to pass. Then we dumped back out onto a downhill dirt road section briefly and a truck  towing a car pulled got in front of me and was going slower than I could go but I was hesitant to pass since the road curved.  Another guy passed by it so I went with him and fortunately managed to get by safely, although a bit sketchy. 

The final section of the course was the only major muddy, wet section which had me and other racers around me pushing our bikes.  I hopped back and finished up strong having no idea really where I placed at that point but I was told fairly well and managed 4th.

My Zaboo rode well with my new lefty fork, new Stans Crest wheels and Continental x-king tires.  So far all is well and the bike felt great today.  Tomorrow is a longer, technical stage.  As I write this, the thunderstorms did finally come through and itís raining pretty nicely now.  I hope it dries out overnight...
