WYDAHO Mtb Race
WYDAHO mtb race at Grand Targhee Resort - Great course at 8,000 ft. Three laps of 7 miles for the expert class. Start temperature? 97°. I was doing great for the first 2 laps. Unfortunately at the top of the first climb on the last lap I flatted while in 5th place. Rather than using common sense and turning back to the start, I proceeded to run with my bike the next 5 miles and finish.
Turns out my running shoes are WAY more comfortable than my cycling shoes. Also turns out that when running with your bike, there's no way to out pace the horses flies. At least I didn't finish last.
