    I didn't realize how big the event was til I got there. Earlier in the year, MsRutzie encouraged me to give this one a go - I'm glad I listened to her! It was a fun race on a really fun course, and I had both a good result and a good time

    I headed up that morning with my gf Lisa and my buddy Cody, both of whom just started mtb riding last year. Between the three of us, we managed some good results - I got 1st in Beginner Male 35-39, Lisa finished 2nd in Beginner Women 30-39, and Cody finished 1st in Beginner Male 25-29 - his first ever MTB race!

    My friends are starting to give me a hard time about sandbagging beginner after having won my last two Beginner races, but even if I was able to turn a second lap as fast as my first (fat chance), I would have finished a lowly 14th of 18. The gap between competitive Beginner and Sport class finishes looks pretty huge - guess I had better start training even harder!

    So what's next?

    Any other good races coming up?

    This was not too crowded with a bunch of fun single track.

    Turns out 5th out of 12 is just enough to get me motivated.

    Here's a bit of help:

    2nd place lead lap - probably Jim Hewitt from Content Works.
    anyone know who this is - 666 was John Bennett

    I came through probably a minute or two after Megan on the first lap. I think you were shouting "stay off the brakes!"

    Still trying to figure out his points system. Sometimes I think I got it, then I don't know wtf..
