    Spray paint on Spiro??

    The other day I rode Spiro up to Mid Mountain and noticed some a-hole spray painted in blue a lot of rocks that were "prominent" on the trail. Seriously....what the F? Annoyed the sh!t out of me for some reason....is it for a race...anyone know? And if it IS for a race maybe those racers should stick the pavement??

    Knowing this area it probably is marking rocks for removal from the trail.

    It's not spray paint, it's chalk. They used it to mark the course for the steeple chase race last weekend. I rode by some of the course workers and stopped to talk to them. I asked them about the "paint" and they told me it's actually chalk. I wonder if it will get washed off with the rain today.
