Bonelli did not appear to be smelly over the weekend for round $3 of the CA MTB Series!

Just when you thought Bonelli was the same ol' like every time before, BAM! Not yesterday!
The new course layout put on by Sho-Air Cycling group and Team Big Bear at Round #4 of the #californiamtbseries was intense...more climbs, steeper, and those hairpin turns!

After a horrible first lap (went the wrong way) and crashed, finally got it together on the last lap to take 5th of 14 in CAT 1.

Dan Blurton rode away into a 2nd place finish, go get 'em at Sea Otter buddy!

Thank you Roger Hernandez and Win Allen for the bottle feeds/support/mechanical brilliance/crotch target feed zones...and all the cheers out on the course, especially Perlay Edward Escareno!

Thank you to all the sponsor supports: Kenda Tire, Sigma Sport, XPEDO pedal, KMC Chain, Felt Bicycles, Ryders Eyewear, Wingspan Cyclery, Win's Wheels, RedMonkey Sports, Brewyard Beer Co., Backbone Adventure Cycling.

The Three Amigos

From Vegas Bob:

Great to get out for my first XC race of the year. Even though my chest cold still lingers, how could I say no to Sagebrush Safari?
Starting from the back the little course changes had me a bit confused, but passing riders in other categories made me feel fast even though I wasn’t! My @feltbicycles Nine is #supersonic and @kendamtb Sabres are #fffast so I had to pay attention on the descents! My 215 gram @xpedousa M-Force 8 pedals were #flawless getting a foot out and back in the many times I foibled on the technical downhills.
Wonderful to meet up with Randy and Ara down there, and the race setup by @quickndirtymtb was first class! Live band, Sierra Nevada beers, prize raffle, product booths, taco truck; I definitely won’t be missing Sagebrush again. @ Lake Morena

Fuzzy on his way to a podium spot!

From Backbone Fuzz:

The HEAT was on yesterday at Quick 'n Dirty MTB Race Series 2019 Sagebrush Safari XC and Super D... windy beautiful warm temps with blue skies made the conditions spot on! Backbone Adventure Cycling was there with Bob Snyder and Randy Rush (Paula M. Cruz!!) 
Great feeling when the legs are dancing on my 
Xpedo pedals, love the long climbs and singletrack descents on this classic course. Personal best in 5th Cat 1 and 9th overall time 2:01 πŸ˜ right behind Incycle Race Team membeDan Blurton, thought I had you on the last climb out buddy! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š
Kenda Tires USA #Sabre and #Honeybadger hooked up well on the mix terrain of sand, chunky rock, slick rock, and steep ups. Felt Bicycles Doctrine1 was the perfect choice again! 
Thank you Victor Sheldon and all the crew/volunteers for keeping an eye on us on the course. Big Thanks to Sierra Nevada for the suds after the race! Cheers mates!

Post race cheers and beers!
