    Well "the unicycle guy" (me) managed two laps in 8hours and 20 minutes!!! Who would have thought a unicycle would have been an asset in a mountain bike race! After an hour of "some" riding it was just a long sloppy hike in the woods for me. I've attached a photo to give those of you who didn't attend this year (the smart ones!) a little idea of the conditions OUT THERE. This was after my first "fast" loop! If it was possible to get worse, it did the second loop. At least I was able to ride perhaps 1/3 of the first loop while I only was able to ride the field sections of the second loop. I'd try to ride some of the downhills only to have the wheel totally lock up! I still don't know why I even bothered to go back OUT THERE for a second loop, but I guess I needed the time on my feet training so why not? Well there is always next year. I know with dry conditions I could ride a whole lot more; like twice as far! This was basically the worst case scenario this year. It was still cool to meet everybody at DSG, especially some of you on this forum! From what I could hear and see it sure seemed like even with the bad riding conditions it didn't put a damper on all the festivities! Hope to see y'all around again...
