Thanks to all the volunteers, race organizers and especially Pistis Cycling for putting on a "real" mountain bike race. The setting for the race and the tons of single-track were just amazing. I loved the three ice cold creek crossings, they added an extra cool factor to the race. The high speed downhill roads and trails were long and fast. The climbs reminded me of the T.O.E. and I was almost D.O.A. at the finish but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I am only sorry we did not do the short track and super D race on Saturday. Even though we made the trip from Portland it was well worth it for the atmosphere and food that was included with the race fee. Thumbs up to all the organizers and participants at this race. We will be back next year for sure. If you mtn bike race put this race on your to do list for next year.
