I liked it. What we all did was race mountain bikes because it was fun. Plain and simple. The intent at the series’ incunabulum was to offer a race that was fun, accessible, local, and a comfortable introduction to those with limited or no racing experience. I also wanted free food. Domino’s, Mesa Verde and The People’s Pint came through on that front and that pleases me greatly. Mountain biking and food. Amen to that. It only gets better when you introduce beer and fire. That’s called camping and it’s tremendous. If you were to combine camping and Kingdom Trails… Wistfully staring into space now… Huh? Oh yes. Where was I?
As for next year, I hope my situation will be such that we can race again. There are several great ideas floating around in various minds. I will post the results of the ferment of enthusiastic discussion I am sure to have soon. My hope is that we end up with something just like what we had this year, only with more people and that the venues rotate. And food. There must be food.
I posted some more photos. Hopefully no cobwebs will form on this blog. I am truly excited about the future of local racing so I will be posting regardless. Granted it may seem aimless and not worth reading, but surely there will be an interesting nugget here and there that you will sift from these superfluous sands.
