TRIBBLE MILL 6 HOUR RACE
Tribble Mill 6 Hour Race
August 28, 2010
This past weekend in Georgia, Namrita O’Dea took on the 6 hour version of the 6/12 hour race at Tribble Mill Park. This race is part of the Chain Buster Endurance Mountain Bike Race Series of 5 events in the Southeast USA.
Namrita primarily took this on as a later season “fun” event while Eddie played the role of support for the day. Namrita started out as the first place overall female out of the 6 and 12 hour event and maintained her lead for the duration of the race. She would go on to be the only solo female to finish with 7 laps in the 6 hour race placing her 1st out of the women and 7th out of the Expert men.
“I haven’t done a solo lap race in quite a while so it was a different mindset for the entire race. I think I prefer the team format (Duo, with Eddie) or the point-to-point races. However, Chain Buster Racing put on a fantastic event so I am really glad I raced. Also, racing with the new Continental X King tires made my day!”
