Pitch Black Single Track

Labor Day Weekend Mountain Bike Race. WEMS (WI Endurance MountainBike Series) event.
I entered the 3 hr. solo starting at 8PM. Had some issues with the Gary Fisher bike again. Very similar issues as I had in PA with massive chain suck. Had to remover the chain the dark, although I had a light. The 2 shots below Jeff took in PA, but the same work needed to be done. Cost me a lap in the results as I didn't get in by the cut-off, 10 minutes late, but I still got my 3 laps in so I was happy. Came to ride, ride I did.

What's cool about this race, besides being a night race, is the start, finish and transition area is right under the deck from Heather's, a local bar who is very supportive of the mtb community.

Some of the winners the morning after.

One of the old timers.....Greg, who's just coming back from a bad motorcycle/deer collision injury that messed up his ankle. Greg's actually a young guy...compared to me.... and he constantly reminds me..6 months, oh wow!
