To answer your question…I didn’t do very well, neither did anyone else. The event turned out to be a huge mess. Someone blew the leaves off the wrong trail, there were duplicate reflective markers, which sent people in all different directions. So there was really no accurate way of timing people. I was just happy to eventually find my way out of that course. Probably the last time I do that . But it was a fun trail ride.
I’d be up for a round valley night ride. One of the last times I did that a “friend” who was ahead decided to jump out from behind a tree on a long ascent with the lights on his face traumatizing me to this day:-) Not funny!!
