Dirt, Sweat, and Gears - Tennessee

Posted by: Shannon Boffeli |May 16, 2010 9:15 AM
The 2010 Dirt, Sweat, and Gears just had to be better than 2009, right? Last year's edition of the classic east coast 12-hour race was marred by heavy rains that left the racecourse wet and sloppy. Lap times for the 10-mile track went from just over an hour to well over 3 hours for even the fastest riders.

As racers lined up for the start Saturday morning conditions were much better than a year ago. The course was dry with an abundance of tacky singletrack. 

It was clear some participants had been scared away by last year's mudfest. Registration was down to 300 from the 400 plus who usually take on the DSG challenge. Many big names were still present including 24-Hour National Champion Josh Tostado (Bach Builders), east coast endurance specialist Brandon Draugelis (Cannondale), and Amanda Carey (Kenda/Felt) for the women.

Although things got off to a good start the rains did return around noon. As the rain continued to fall the course began to get sloppy and many riders started to have flashbacks of 2009. Several riders decided to hang it up for the day rather than risk getting stuck in the mud out on course.

Race officials quickly addressed the problem by cutting a 20-minute section out of the course. 

Amanda Carey's husband and mechanic, Nate said, "The mud was pretty bad but we got through it with a couple of cyclocross style bike changes. Amanda started out with a 29er but actually preferred her 26 inch bike when the trail got muddy."

After a few hours of precipitation the rains passed and the course quickly dried up leaving a fast and tacky racecourse that the riders enjoyed.

In the end Amanda Carey's strategy paid off as she took the win in the women's solo race while east coast mudder Brandon Draugelis took the men's race in front of Tostado.
