Cheq 100, 2015

Lots of rain this year. Around 63 out of 130 or so that started, finished.
I came in at the middle of the pack of finishers, 28th. Results page.
85-90 miles of singletrack, how great is that?
A very good race under tough conditions. I rode as fast as I could without taking too many chances. The bike performed well, Trek/Gary Fisher Superfly full-suspension, 29er. I felt good most of the ride, clearing all the rock sections without issues. Spent about 5-10 minutes at the 60 mile "half way" point to restock food and water.
Eating was a test as sand and grit was every present. One learns to chew without grinding sand between ones teeth.
