A couple of years ago, for the first XXX, we invited some local Boulder "CX guys", who upon completion of the ride determined it was too hard and too rocky for their delicate bodies and bikes.
They weren't invited this time. Only tough and fun people were invited- i.e.- our friends from not Boulder.
We made 3 "loops" - each loop being hard, steep, challenging, and fun.
Honey going down Honeybadger. The whoopdies at Valmont are nothing compared to Honeybadger's whoops.
Yep, it was fun. And hard. 4km feet of climbing in 28 miles all above 8,000ft.
Tony P, thank you for your really nice comment on my Crit Nats win. You're kicking butt on your bike riding! Keep it up. Keep riding, keep getting healthy, and keep having fun! See ya next year.
