That looks epic. I don't know how you managed. For me, just the gallons of water alone are a lot.
Exhausting. Hope you got good rest after all that. After lobbying Swampfox on the correct person to vote for today. ;-)

I don't see how you managed that either, unless you waded through the water!

I started out with everything, but when I hit the big tree in the middle, I placed my bike resting in the water and kept going to drop my backpack on the other side. Then went back for my bike, but it was still difficult to pull it through the tree branches.

My bike paid me back for the abuse by having a flat back tire on Saturday morning, probably from all of the cactus thorns I pulled out of the tire. I changed that tube, and put out the rest of the controls, but by the end of the day, my back tire was flat again. And my front tire decided to join in, too. So this morning will be spent thoroughly examining both tires for more cactus spines.

...and that's why everyone loves Chatfield. Time for a US Mountain BIke-O Championships there; to make it fair, all contestants will have to start with both tires flatted by cactus spines.
