I cannot control the weather, no matter how much I prayed into my glass of Pendleton Saturday night.
I understand what you mean but in my opinion the difficulty is what made it such a great course. You did get it to rain Saturday night. I suppose you simply put the Pendleton away too early to get as much as was needed. Thanks again for all the hard work!

Talking love it!

Keep it up stumpjumpers! I am still smiling!!!

This year had to be longer and harder than years past. my times from the last 4 years are all real close and this year I felt like i was ripping it up!

this was a course of line management and Wind/Dust managment. Some of those little valleys with the swirling wind/dust were worse than being behind 10 riders...

Great job and i cant wait for next year! like golf, i always want to go back and get a better score.

if my filter skin and plug wouldnt have broke me down for 10 min i would have probably finished in the 70s instead of 80th overall... ill take it tho!

goodnight
luke

I was thinking that was the case. Thanks for the clarification. Maybe next year I will say fuck it and go for the second lap.
