  1. I was really suprised that there were so many people that ride mountain bikes competively in New York and New Jersey. I was able to rent a pretty sweet bike from a local bike store called “TRED BIKES”, I had a Speclized Stumpjumper Enduro.
    The course that was set up there was quite chalangeing because event though there was not much elevation gain the 14mile course was very rocky and slick after the recent rain recived. It was really fun being able to race though down town Manhattin in a park.
