    Did my first real endurance mtb race

    with about 4 months of training (bet), anyway the race went well the problem was the crash at the beginning of the race, the busted knee did slow me down. 100kms race who knows how many thousands of feet of climbing. I had never been down there so I had no idea of the course.

    My heart rate monitor listed 6.30 hrs with an average of 165 beats Came in 9th in my age group. So now I have to go back in 2012 and redeem myself.

    Recommend the race fun, and very well staffed.

    Congrats on a fine effort. Seems like you left it all out on the course.

    Yeah you can say that

    I'm 48, and my first race in years. The knee had a rough time. I hung around at the end for the bike and frame raffle.

    ouch! make sure you take good care of that wound. knee trauma can cause big issues for us cyclists.

    good work on 9th!

    Is healing great to be fair

    it looks much worst that it is, is almost a Hollywood special effect So is fine been riding(commuting) on the road all week, which helps the healing.
