Great day for racing - almost too nice for 'cross. They did a nice job with the course. The had a short spot going across a sidehill in dirt that caused more folks problems than I would have imagined. And then threw in a big dirt bump that was kind of fun. The atmosphere was really good, they had a ton of tents up and cards for the poker game. One thing that we might want to add is the paper and markers to make posters to cheer with! I also like that they raised a bit of cash for charity.
Ladd and I did this one! More on that epic battle soon. For now, enjoy and comment.
Ok, I admit this is part report and part shameless plug to get people to do this with me next year.
Okay, this is gonna be a cool toy!
I'm just going to start off with this challenge - let's get a group and sign up for 2014! (Yeah, it was really fun and we need to do this again soon.) Dan and I are working on a scheme that will make you all want to join, there will be more details later!
Big thanks to Aaron's friend for letting us crash in his basement (which was close to Husky Stadium) and Jon for driving support and a place to crash in Portland.
We arrived in Seattle late - only 4 hours sleep! Probably not the best way to prepare for a day on the bike, but we rolled with it.
