Watch those trees

Post by gots_a_sol » Wed Aug 15, 2018 8:09 pm

:dry: :lol2:




My buddy Steve went full tree hugger in the same race (it rained like crazy the previous night so it was a bit slick out there if you couldn't tell)





Here is the first 15 mins or so of my race if you are bored. This is the best start I have ever had, then I backed off too soon :screwy:

Ouch.
I think we've all experienced that at some point.

That last video was great! Love the terrain. Looks like that was http://vchss.org/directions/2018/dir_br2_18.htm at Martinsville, VA? Five hours for me, but looks like it's worth it.

Yes, that is where this race was. They race there twice a year. Great course usually. Can't do much about the rain though haha
