Just some thoughts and experiences from a mountain bike endurance racer who likes to ride and race his single speed mountain bike a long long way on remote single track in the mountains and desert.

1st Place overall on a SS (Shared) Sedona Big Friggin Loop

I was thrilled with the tire performance again in my most recent race, the “Sedona big friggin loop race”, which is part of the Arizona endurance series.  I shared the overall 1st place finish with another racer who recently switched to Racing Ralphs after I told him about how happy I was with them.  Together we managed to survive the 60 mile route which was very technical, had difficult navigational challenges, and dangerous river crossings.

2nd place SS solo, 2010 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo

16 Laps.  I recently switched to the Schwalbe Racing Ralphs for the 24 hours in the old Pueblo where I took 2nd and had no problems with the tires for the full 260 miles even considering all the sharp rocks and cactus on the single-track trail.  The tires performed great.
