Want to relive the "fun"? Check out this handle bar camera footage from the Elks CX Cat 5 race! There was a super steep run up that no one attempted to ride up in our race, and the course was described by those in the know as "more mountain than CX."
I'm a roadie so I don't know about that sort of thing (I don't have a mountain bike and haven't ridden a mountain bike trail since I was 12), but when I asked what that meant they said because it was mostly single track with lots of roots.
Check back in for photos of the racers and bikes, coming soon!
