I could not see more than 10 feet in front of me between fog, mist and my fogging glasses, but I got in a lap this morning. The climbing is really going to suck, literally, with all the mud. They added more steep ups at the start finish from last year. With the mud, it may be like cyclo-cross run ups . The single track enchanted forest was slippery, but quite doable and kind of fun in a cowboy mountain bike kind of way. In it's current state, it may not be worth pushing too hard in there on race day. Many wet roots on off cambers and turns. I came out the section feeling mentally charged. The forest may be the best part of the course, although most people I talked to, said it was their least favorite. Weather is supposed to lift by late afternoon today. I am looking forward to a few sunny days.
