Ignomy and swinish slumber.

My first XC race and first race of any sort in 33 years. The Avanti 6 hour, talk about going in at the deep end. Ignomy, I didnt last the six hours, three and half was all I could muster. Swinish slumber, a few beers after and ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ... Thumbnails attached,

1. Riders meeting before the start
2. Team Barnacle, the Chief and I are both Navy, he's a regular road racer but this was his first MTB race too. We both entered as solo riders, neither of us actually made the six hours but the Chief got in a couple more laps than me. I'm the good looking one.
3. Their Off! notice how I'm developing my (being) overtaken skills right from the start. By the end I was expert level.
4. Dissapearing into the woods for another lap.
5. Support crew.

As and if any pics show up on the local club site I will attach them.

Hey, at least you were out there. Sounds like a good time.......in a sick and twisted sort of way.
