I like my riding temperature a bit milder than what’s forecasted for tomorrow... my blood has thinned since moving out east from MN four years ago

So it was a bit brisk this morning on the way in.

Image

I was worried I wasn't going to be able to make the race because my dumbass didn't plug in the Excursion and it was not pleased about the temps this morning. I ended up putting my big 150k BTU salamander heater in front of the truck and let it blast away for about 45 mins before it finally started. :dry:

Image

The temps rose slightly by the start of the race but it was still only 11* out by the end of the C race. Needless to say, there was no mud :lol2: Very slick and treacherous out there. I managed to only lightly biff it twice. Once on a downhill off camber with just a tiny bit too much rear brake. There just isn't much to be done when the bike gets going at 90* to the direction of travel :shrug: Most folks that I saw crashing were doing the exact same thing or giving it too much throttle on exit and looping it around.

And the second time was getting past some dude that had been holding me up forever. Finally cleared him and immediately got cross rutted and down I went. I did block the entire trail though so he couldn't pass me back :killingme:

So I hang around to see the times figuring maybe a top 5. Was really not expecting to see this. This is my first ever podium in a hare scramble (previous best was 5th)

No video as the cold sucked my gopro battery down to nothing.

122 in the C race. No idea on youth or A/B races.

I was 14th overall.

Good deal! It is hard to ride in these temps and not be all over the place! :thumbup:
Lots of cool bikes---
