Fraught With Peril

This past weekend Kelly and I capped off the cycling season with one last ridiculous race: The Ice Weasels Cometh!  It was miserably cold (~10 degrees), the course was frozen solid, featured numerous off-camber sections, icy straight-aways, one huge run-up, a slick series of downhill switchbacks, and of course the quintessential barriers, forcing the rider to dismount or bunny-hop.  While I suffered from a flat-tire on the second lap and finished poorly, Kelly pulled her best finish of the season placing 6th in her category.  The peril (and fun) is captured in stunning HD below, for your enjoyment!

    Nicely done. That was a bizarre and sketchy race. But fun. If it’s any consolation, I flatted in warm-ups and during the race. Time to consider tubulars 🙂 Good luck in ’14!

      Thanks! My girlfriend runs tubulars -it’s my first season so I was conservative on equipment. Maybe next year. It was super sketchy, but I enjoyed it.
