Fun race, although the pizza and chili were long gone by the time many of us old farts finished.

Unfortunately, I ran into technical issues that kept me from pre-running all of the courses on Sat and only managed 3 and 1.

I was doing fine until stage 4... when every other rock on the course was a drop... and I roll up to one after the gully and realize it's not a drop - it's a gap jump. But my speed was for a drop more than a jump. Tried to huck over it and it didn't go well. Sat on the side of the trail for about 3 minutes as I tried to decide if I was still in one piece enough to continue. And reattached my timing chip which somehow got ripped off my wrist. Stage 5 was painful. I'm still really sore today... Would have been DFL except another friend flatted at the top of Stage 5 and had to walk most of the stage.

@UtahJoe - the transfer was downright pleasant compared to the Spring event where the climb was greasy and it felt like every pedal stroke resulted in 75% movement.

A few of us are pondering going there on the Friday after Thanksgiving to ride the trails again.

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! 30 pizzas was just not enough with the cold weather. There will be more pizza and chili next time around! Appreciate all of you crossing the river to support our scene. Hit me up if you are coming to ride the Glen!
