    New DH racer to the area... lets go ride Windrock or the TTC!

    Hey guys,

    I just moved to Antioch from Boone, NC to take a job with Lightwave Solar installing solar panels in the area. I'm sure there isn't much for downhill in the immediate area, especially compared to Boone, but if any of you want to make weekend trips to the Rock or to the TTC I'm in. I race CAT 1 and Pro downhill with SEI racing/Yeti and would love to meet up with fellow enthusiasts around here.

    I have been to the Rock several times but never to the TTC. How far is it from here?

    I also have my Yeti 575 for all mountain and trail riding around here, as well as my slalom bike. I checked out Hamilton Creek for the first time yesterday, and had a blast. The bmx track looks great too. Anybody got a bmx bike I can check it out with?!

    Thanks

    Hey Craig -

    We just rode WR yesterday . . . so we'll definitely let you know when we go riding. You ride any XC also? There's some awesome trails around here! Also - check out middle tn gravity mountain biking on FB (link below). You on PB? There are vids of TTC under my vid section there (link below also).


    Brian

    P.S. You ride Haro?!! Love those bikes and the customer service is the best I've experienced thus far!

    Brian, I don't ride a haro anymore. I got into the sport quite some time ago on a 2004 haro extreme x1. I guess that was eight years ago when I was a freshman in high school. Hard to believe how fast time flies.

    I currently have an Evil Undead that I got as a warranty frame from my broken revolt. When I was waiting (2 years) for the undead, I got a Yeti 303r frame, but I'm planning on selling one or the other soon to get a moto.

    And yes, I do ride xc. I ride a lot of all mountain trail rides out in Wilsons Creek, but I know there is none of that around here. I have a 2012 575 which is slightly more than I need here, but it pedals well so I'm fine with it!

    If you want to ride local, PM me your number and will text you. Usually ride Hamilton Creek with a few others Wednesday around 5, but there's also a group ride at 5:30 there. Also get out to all the other trails including Raccoon Mtn. about 3-4 times a week, and DH typically once a month.

    Have fun - hopefully you'll have good weather. Our last run last from the top Sunday was in the pouring rain - made it interesting!

    Craig, hey I'm new here as well from Atlanta. I know this post is super old but I figured I would try. I have another guy from atl and were looking for people to ride with/carpool. I'm not far from you in Brentwood from Antioch. Pm me and mate we can hook up and do some riding/urban terrorizing of some local colleges. Hit me up!
