    Kitsuma?

    Anybody been on Kitsuma lately? Looks like lots of rain forecast this week and ORAMM is coming up on Sunday. Last year, Kitsuma was like an ice rink the 2nd time down. I was hoping for better conditions this time around, but like they said in that song - you can't always get what you want.

    It was fine yesterday. A few puddles/mud holes but overall it drains off OK. A few of the roots try to throw you off the trail, though, but that's always a fun challenge on that trail.

    Wonder if a different tire would help. Good luck in the race.

    The only tire that would have helped last year would have been one of those moto ice racing tires with 3" spikes.

    I will need some luck this year. Thanks.

    At one point I went down on my ass.

    I don't mean I fell on it.

    I mean I gave up, sat down, and slid on my ass.

    That would have been a good plan. I fell on mine 4 or 5 times coming down.
