    first when you wreck throwing your hands down is the wrong thing to do because you'll break your wrist been there done that. i have raced with gloves for years. i dont think the give you any extra grip. wearing glasses in WV just doesn't work because they get covered in mud or they fog up and you cant see.

    Dont worry about those few older people who try and dwarf you with age, salsa. You're younger, smarter, and you're not a 40-something trying to look cool on Internet forums.

    Plus, I bet you'd kill 95% of us in the dirt

    Here are a couple more pics from the Mammoth Mash race that Duane and Rico mentioned earlier! It was a crazy muddy mess, but overall it was an odd kind of fun. I think the people with vbrakes, and/or mechanical discs had more pains than those with hydraulic. So much mud!!

    Here are a few more pics... http://nationalmountainbike.com/boar...ead.php?t=1369

    ^ are you planning on doing the XTERRA in upstate (NY) in september? I was thinking of coming out for that. I've only done 1 Tri before(XTERRA buffalo creek) it was torture, but afterwards you kind of remember how much fon it was. Plus the fam can come out (I'm an NY transplant in CO).

    I would love to do that race but I have a 1/2 ironman in Rhode Island on 9/9 and the Vermont 50 on 9/30.

    I am kind of saving up for those two weekends.

    I am probably going to do the local xterra sprint race in august sometime just for fun (well actually, there all just for fun).

    I'll be back in richmond next year for the championship race unless something crazy happens .

    they are very well run events.

    Here's one shortly after I finished the Boyne Marathon. They were laughing about my hair and wanted to capture the moment...

    Apparently, the link doesn't work. I will try again later...
