8 hours of pain and suffering didn’t exactly pan out for me, or Ken, this weekend. Ken needs to learn how to ride a mountain bike again, while I pulled the plug early to save some energy for the dull drive back to Edmonton. Really though, I just need to lay off on the ‘suck’ – I admit it.  The day started out cold with snow, drizzle and a ton of mud but there was still a great turn out – those mountain bikers sure are a hearty bunch, hahah… Deadgoat put on a great event for sure  – Good times… Good times! I actually found it pretty amazing that racers kept hammering laps out given how slow and soft the course was. I mean it was slooow going and you were working for everything out there. I seriously gotta hand it to those that powered through for any longer than I did.
