Rider Profile: Brian Grubbs
I started Mountain Biking in 2005 with my wife as a way to do something fun, adventurous, and get back into shape. In 2010, my wife and I entered the 2 Person Open of the 24 Hour of Rocky Hill as our first race. We figured it we just kept riding and didn't stop we wouldn't get last. After placing 7th of 12 teams we were excited to have done so well above our expectations. That started us racing and we now race all year round.
Riding and racing my bike gives me time to push myself, work on self improvement and it's just fun. Not to mention that now in my mid 40's, I'm in the best shape I've been in since my mid 20's. It is also something my wife and I do together and now a big part of our lives.
What do I like about riding at RHR:
I like riding at RHR because it's not overly technical and doesn't beat you up like other central Texas rocky courses. It does offer lots of challenges like loose gravel, some punchy climbs, deep sand, and fast flowy sections. My favorite part of the course is probably Karaway...because I know the first few miles of climbing is over and it's all fast from there. I usually spend 5-10 hours a week riding at RHR during the summer preparing for another solo effort at the 24 Hours of Rocky Hill.
What races do I like best:
I race in the TMBRA XC series but most enjoy ultra endurance racing best. A 24 hour solo race is more than a test and gut check. It challenges you on so many levels physically and mentally. I like that not anyone can do it and most people think I'm crazy for wanting to race my bike for 24 hours without stopping. I think they may be right...
Obviously fitness level and ability to push the pedals harder helps. However, the best way to get faster, ride safer, and have more fun is to learn how to not brake so much. Sounds hard at first, but keep your head up and look where you want to go, not where you are going. Keep your weight on your pedals, not on your seat and handlebars. And lean the bike, not the body when turning. Practicing these somewhat simple skills will make you a better, safer, and faster rider.
