CAUTION, possable boasting!

packed the mountain bike this morning just in case i got off work early enough to sneak a quick chubb ride in. Big road ride tomorrow so I only wanted to do a fast single. work went smooth, finished up around 1:30 headed for chubb. My legs was a little tired still from the night ride Thursday but not a big deal, I had one thing to do and that was to get this thing done in 1 hour. others have done it and I have always wanted to. The first time I ever road chubb it took me something like 2 hrs + on my buddys bike. The year before I started racing my best was 1:20 ride time only and I remember after that ride somebody talking about some fast dude who did a double in 2hrs and that was when chubb was technical! Since then I have ridden it more times then I could count, I always stick to the same basic, lone elk straight out and straight back unless I'm riding with somebody else. If I want to get chubb done in less than a hour here's what has to be done, have to be at the tracks in less than 4 min, its a must to be at the start of the big climb in 12 to 13 min. get there to fast and the climb is going to kill me so I always try to save a little. usually go really hard to the rock face and then set in a nice groove to the picnic table, its a must to be at the picnic table in under 20 min. from the picnic table to west tyson is the best, you gotta ride it like its black top and get to the end 28 to 29 min. turn around and do it in reverse. picnic table in less than 42 min. slam the downhill and hall ass through the flats and hopefully save something for the last climb. get to the last climb in 56:30 and well shouldn't be a problem finishing it up in less than a hour! gotta love the chubb.... made it home early, wife cooked up a awesome meal and my parents stopped by for a great evening.

wow that is fast! i used to ride out and do the west tyson-flint quarry counter clockwise. i think 1:10 for me was pretty fast if I remember correctly.

so you racing next weekend or what? let me know so i can ask the promoter for a special 2 cd place trophy for dudes on white mountain bikes or something. i looked at chris times from last year, don't think i'm going to be going that fast!!!

You're riding the Chubb faster than pretty much anybody ever has. I remember glamour boy, Ryan Pirtle, turning in a 28:50, riding from Lone Elk, at his peak in the days of Chubb time trials.

We should hold impromptu time trials. Don't tell the authority figures.

I'm still impressed with your Chubb x 6.

Why Don't we have an Impromtu TT? All we need is 2 volunteers with stopwatches and cell phones. Let's make this happen.
