Someone in my club just circulated this. I would have gone maybe 50' before I crashed and burned. Loved the dog obstacle.

The dog quickly became a non-factor. I thought that once he rode over the tape it was going to end badly based on my cyclo cross experiances.

I could not do this race since I would have trouble with the post race interviews. I do not speak Spanish.

This (and the other thread yesterday) look like a venue that the Finns cooked up when they were sitting around in the middle of summer w/ no crap weather to play in... These guys have madd handling skillz, yo!

I don't speak Spanish either but I wouldn't have to worry about any post race interviews.

Unless it was by the EMS people.
