“A Super D race is best described as a downhill cross country race. It is shorter than a cross country race, most of the time a hour or less. They will have more technical sections along with a few sections that require some significant pedaling.”

If you are not always checking the internet for the latest bike gossip it’s easy to miss cool stuff. This is a little late, but still very cool-
What is Super D?
During the first race we were fighting long waits up at top in 40 degree weather due to big gaps being given to each rider. The second race everyone learned and was more prepared. I had many more layers of clothing and also took my time getting to the start as not to be standing around getting cold. Hard rains during the week mucked up the trail a lot and was some of the worst mud to try to ride fast. The third race had the best conditions overall, still cold and snowy up top, but the lower section was pretty tacky and the times were fast considering the conditions. Thanks to the promoters; it was great way to start the season!
Here are some pictures from the series taken by Allison Ware and Liz Hulvalchick. Thanks for standing out in the rain all day!

An exhausting first day of the bike show is behind us – declared a rousing success! Don’t know what the numbers are, but at times seemed busier than last year. Lots of new exhibitors and ones from last year as well. Seemed like attendees were having a great time splitting their time between lots activities – presentations at the main stage; trials riding (Ryan Leech); tricks on the jumping ramps; checking out bikes on the test ride track; and fitting demos by Matt Magee at our booth. Be sure to view the slide show below to see some of the goings on.
“It has been 7 years since the introduction of the Roubaix – a bike that was born from requests I received from many of you, saying “Mike, we need a road bike that focuses on performance-minded riders who prefer riding endurance events!”
This feedback led to the creation of the Endurance Road category that serves so many riders.”
