Branched Oak Area 7 is wicked!

Local Psycowpath race was held out at Branched Oak Area 7 today. The race was moved to Sunday and started a couple of hours later due to rain from a storm on Friday. Race Promoters, Troy, Craig and company, made the right call to postpone the event one day. The event went off without a hitch. Great job fellas!

Prior to the race I was a bit worried about mud, but was pleasantly surprised once I got out on the trail. There were some greasy spots which forced you to take it easy around some of the corners, but the trail ended up ideal after a few laps. The greasy corners turned into sticky flypaper. It was wicked.

The trail system out at Branched Oak Area 7 is very impressive. Kudos to Craig and company for all their hard work! After the race today the whole race loop should have a great big ole smooth line laid down. Got out there and check it out!

Look at that nice big smooth line

Nice ridin' today, Corey. You were clearly the class of the field, if not the entire day. Congratulations on a race well won. Nine laps in just over three hours is pretty amazing.

Cheers,
MG

stunning, really! you made it look easy...

i was really impressed by the sweet additions to the trail, including Darin's tree farm, the little weavy section by the lake (bony goodness!), and i even liked the reroute out of the creek bottom and up to the left onto the open grassy bits! the additional pieces made some of the more familiar pieces even more enjoyable.

and you are right on the money...flypaper it was!!!

Thanks fellas. It was a fun, but a tough race. My legs and back are still pretty damn sore.

Bacon on Sunday? Hmmmm...maybe. I'd like to hit Manawa on Sunday. Maybe I'll meet you fellas up at Platte for breakfast and then head on up to Manawa.
