The inaugural Oktoberfest mountain bike race that I’m helping with this weekend is now approaching its third and final day. It’s been a great first year event. The rain that ‘washed off the course’ finally rolled out Saturday afternoon, which dramatically helped the course and the riders. Hills, water, mud, more mud, no friction for the tires … you can see how that could be a problem.
I’m here because once upon a time, I helped organize MTBO sister event the Cowbell
Classic Challenge and stayed involved with the organization that runs it. We’re getting ready to go. Our 72hr marathon is now crossing into its final stages.
