So once again Marc and I signed up for a two person relay. The attraction to this one was, its at a Brewery, and did I mention it was at a Brewery. The folks at JB Mountain bikes put on an awesome event. Now, there were a few things that weren't that great. The course was a little short, there was a lot of mud, and it was very humid, and did I mention the mud?
So, the run was short and I managed to hit the bikes in the top 15 or so. I went with the single speed because of the mud. Since the lap was only 1.25 miles and I was doing 1 to start, I went all out. I passed a few people and was going pretty good, then I spotted Scotty and managed to bridge up to him. I put in a little attack and finished the first lap 3RD over all. Marc went out for a double which was to be our rotation for the next 4 hours.
This was our routine for the rest of the race, which good enough to get us a 2ND place. Given the competition, we were pretty stoked by that result. Plus they gave the top 3 teams beer, how awesome is that.
Even though the course was muddy and short, I would do it again in a heart beat. So much fun, can't wait until next year.
Thanks to Rob May for the beer feeds, very much appreciated.
