Did you race yesterday? What you think of the coarse?
I thought it was fun and fast. A little muddy with some slippery spots, but didn't think it was too bad. The steep climbs were tough when wet. I made it 20 miles and had to drop out cause of knee pain. I thought all the racers were awesome, very friendly and supportive of each other. I saw a lot of broken chains, derailers and flats out there.
I had a great time as well. It was technical and fun, but a bit too many hike-a-bikes up those NASTY short headwalls. The competitors were all nice and Im doing it again next year. But next time Im starting near the front...I was saddled behind slower riders on the tight singletrack sections for almost the whole first lap. But I was happy with my ride. Lots o' mud...after 3 cleanings my bike is still dirty.
