Pretty funny that you went out of your way to avoid the race and ended up smack in the middle of it. West Tyson was hopping yesterday! So cool to see so many people out enjoying the park. :)
I figured parking would be a problem. It was fun to see everyone running about. I think that's the first year for biking in WT. Didn't mind missing that. Took some restraint to not offer help to some teams that looked lost on my way back to the car. Went through the TA several times but didn't see you and your team. Sounds like you had a good race. Glad the rain held off until today!
Me too! Though conditions like this definitely favor experienced teams over new ones, and racing in crappy conditions is its own kind of fun.
There's really nothing fun about MTB at Tyson in the rain.
I enjoyed vetting the O course. Hope the teams enjoyed racing it.
I'm sure that's true, though at my comfort level I'd be HAB West Tyson in the rain.
thx for helping our volunteer! i didn't realize she didn't have a map to get up to TA until Andrei told me about it after the race. we were wondering how she even made it. now we know...thx nav fairy!!
