I'm back from Flagstaff and even managed to beat Dave home so have yet to hear all his gory CTR details. He did finish on Saturday.
I tallied up 108 miles of riding in 2 days. I'd heard Flag had good trails and was not disappointed one little bit.
Saturday was Crazy88 which was super duper fun. Great loop and cool post race party. I rode on and off with Troy - local Flagger, and enjoyed following his lines when I could keep up. I finished in 9 hours and 8 minutes coming in 4th. On the start line I counted 50 racers. No pics from Sat tho as I wasn't in a camera carrying mood.
Sunday Dara led me around a fun loop linking together all sorts of different trails with cool names like Jedi and Little Bear.
Most looked like this. Lovely buff and flowy.
I was totally digging all the ferns. I haven't ridden in ferns for a long time.
Lots of rolly ups and downs perfect for the single speed. Dara was on her 1-speed too.
Meadows and flowers.
Troy and Dara's wee one McKenna is a nature girl thru and thru. Not afraid of the dirt....
