    NCCC #3 Hawksnest, Seven Devils, NC

    Enough mud for you? I'm pretty sure I could have done just as well carrying the bike for the entire race. Hugely fun. I am so weak.

    Right about here, I was so weak too.

    Third Pro/1/2 race so far, and by far the toughest- but the most fun as well.

    I never saw the hill look that good. How early in the day was that?

    I guess I learned my lesson about traveling all the way across the state without a backup bike. Somehow my derailleur decided to go from mid-cassette to wrapped around my spoke coming down the hill to start my 3rd lap.

    Spent the day scrambling to source parts to hopefully make it next weekend.

    ------------

    Enjoyed the overall atmosphere of the event, although there was nothing fun about the mud or dreary conditions.

    If you're on facebook, there's a slew of great pics. Just look for the Boone Bike & Touring page.

    Indeed you guys did. I rode the CX4 right after your race. It was soup! The best part of the race was the worn out p/1/2 guys yelling at the 4s. Hilarious. Bier! I was laughing my ass off with the little breath I could spare. One muddy turn had a guy yelling, "Get off your brakes! Go faster!" On the next lap I tried that. While I was picking myself up he yelled, "Go faster next time!" How the heck do you practice riding in that much mud? Gotta have tubulars at 23 psi I guess.

    On the run-up someone threw a dollar bill into the mud. As we came around they were yelling, "Get the dollar!" I should have went back for it. No chance at placing so might as well have fun.

    My favorite cheer to exhausted and suffering riders - and I've heard this at other races - is, "Cross is fun!"
