    That race didn't go very well, ultimately.

    I'm already a few practices and a training race in this season, but I'm too much of a cheapskate to buy the pictures, and too guilt-ridden to upload them, now that I've pulled them out of my browser cache. :p

    Good job! I dry heaved and got a leg cramp just looking at them.

    When the head drops and the toptube becomes your friend, well, that's some suffering!! :thumbsup:

    Sand... we raced on Camp Pendleton last year for Storm the Beach. Tide was out so riding the entirety of the beach wasn't too bad, but we had massive amounts of sand. It was sort of fun :thumbsup:

    From my first cross race today. It was only 30 mins in Noob Class but I was on a fixed gear. So it felt like much more. I pulled out 7th place of 40 riders which isnt too shabby.



    Not suffering in this one. Was ringing my bell and goofing off.

    Nice, that sand was rough. I need to learn how to ride over it efficiently. I noticed you were just plowing through it every time.

    running thru mud isn't suffering...that's the love cry of ... love ;)

    seriously, here's pain...i hate this shot. Beacon Cross (New Jersey)...the sand pit was the longest allowed by MAC...this must be after riding through 1/3 of it then running the other 2/3s...for the 3rd time....

    This year at the school of hard-knocks. Crossed the finish line and then found a private spot to empty my belly.

    This year at Cacti cross:

    Rode faster then I ever have and hardly suffered at all. If only all races days could be like that.

    Lets hear it for Stews podium finish!

    I think he forgot to show the MUD.

    " width="549">

    The look on my face says it all. The mud was very muddy, very cold, very wet, and very miserable!

    But I still had fun!

    I haven't found a good pic of that bog yet but by the 3rd race it was unrideable. Just a bunch of deep footholes, The hill that lead up to it was also unrideable for most of the race as well.
