The amount of times I missed my bars when shouldering this bike in the mud this weekend was a lot. Something to work on – the little mistakes can add up.

Due to thunderstorm delays, Andrew’s race ended just as it was getting dark

This looks a lot thicker and grippier than it actually is

Learning how to tripod this year has made racing in all conditions 10000% easier and I would say it is a necessary skill in everyone’s arsenal.

Sunday, Day 2

A much tackier day made the mud slightly easier to manage. Here is the same downhill as in the above photo. Still needed to put a foot out, but there was much more traction, even at a higher tire pressure.

Elbow inside the saddle is proper technique as I learned recently

Andrew: “This is the best cycling photo angle. It makes people’s legs look huge and their arms looks tiny.”

Ok so the lighting in these is sweet. This section leaves the hill side of the course and enters out on to the backside.

Pump track! Made slightly treacherous with the mud but still pretty lit

Here’s that sultry lighting again. At this point it was getting really cold, probably hovering around 30F.
