Lots of beautiful snow, frost, and sunny skies during the cross country race today.
I had to go back on the trail after the race for the photos so I didn’t get any runners unfortunately.
7.5 km of single track makes for a great race.
On this trail there was not very many passing zones so if you get stuck at the back during the race start it’s a tough slog to work your way to the front. I didn’t succeed in getting back to the front. I should have pushed harder in the first few hundred meters. I could have gained probably 20 finish places at least.
Footprints from 100 runners.
You know you haven’t tried hard enough if you don’t at least nearly wipeout. I landed on my butt 3x during this 40 minute race.
Treacherous cross country can be a blast.
