Well, if this picture doesn't quite tell the story, I am not sure what else will. With 56 riders registered for this weeks Short Track Race at Castlewood, the rain was inevitable. Just say the words "bike ride" and the clouds role in. Not sure what we all did to please the rain Gods this year, but they have given us ample moisture. The river is still up but falling at this writing. Hopefully we will be on the old course next week.
This weeks course ran the opposite direction on the same single track and field. In the later half of the A race I felt drops and thought to myself: "hey it won't be all that bad, probably just some misty stuff that will not even effect the trail. Well, dumparoo. It rained hard for the last 10 minutes and well in to the B and C race. Didn't matter, a good time was had by all. I did feel sorry for the C racers, alot of them doing their first race ever. I reckon they know what bike mainenance is all about now. Clean those bottom brackets fellers.
