i guess it was probably the type of snow. It was very dry.
It was only 28 degrees most of the guys were sweating. I was too, but my feet were cold from trudging through snow.

You seem like you are probably very fit. You cram a lot of exercise in. If this is the off-season for you, then you must be an animal at your peak! :)

Riding in mud is discouraged on our local trails. When it rains I am forced out onto the road. I don't mind it too much. The big thing I hate is riding when it's cold and raining at the same time.

That's a sweet ride. Makes me wish I hadn't sold my rigid frame and fork. Would have been a good use for it.

That's probably a little further than I was thinking of driving. Do they have a race in Madison? I liked that town when I was there a few years back.

I guess I should add that I am somewhere between a sport level and expert rider - definitely not a pro by any means. Just looking for events that are worth driving to.
