The 24 hr was a great race thread
Big Thanks to all who helped organize the past weekends fun!
I had a great time and enjoyed the course, well I could have done without the uphill sections but the downhill and single tracks were a riot. There must be some good stories out there, someone had to eat it on that steep downhill section? On the 1st lap the 2 people in front me came to an abrupt stop so I ended up walking down it but stayed on the wheels for my remaining laps.
To pass the time I would say “Hello Ribeye” to the cows then a ways before the single track there were 3 cows and one started walking towards me, he/she/it was about 10 yards off the trail, and then as I got closer it starting running at me! To which I stood up and started peddling faster, it missed me.
I stopped for dinner just before the rain hit, and then the beer tasted good so I had one more, and then there was more rain….well you get the picture.
It was pretty sweet at night watching the lights cruise around. Good fun all around. Thank You again to all who were part of making 24 hrs happen!
See you on the trails Amigos
24hrs of hell in paradise
I also had a great time at the race. It seems like each year was more fun than the last! The climb kicked my ass, as usual but I loved the downhill and the single track. Maybe next year I'll drink less and ride more, but I doubt it!
Great job Scottie, Chris, Tim, and all who helped and participated. Till next year, Aloha
To the guys who missed it:
We added a downhill portion on the course this time
We had a live DJ spinning music all night (thanks bomb)
Beer was flowing
The racing was a nail biter until the last second ticked off on the clock.

Again Thanks! I saw Spicoli's pics in the other thread but who was out there with the big cameras?
