Any pics of the race.........anybody?

Postby KTMpilot » Wed Aug 26, 2009 7:02 am

I'd love to see a photo montage, we had a great turnout to a great race! Kindly leave out any photos of me marooned at the top of the hill with a broken sprocket, my race was over at the 32k mark. Thanks to all the volunteers and everyone involved, it was a really fun course.

Not much to elaborate on, it's more of a hard luck story! I was having a pretty good race up till that point, I think I was a few minutes behind you guys dicing it out up front. Anyways, My countershaft sprocket decided it was time to shed all its teeth, pretty sure a rock had something to do with it because I race checked my bike the previous week and all was good. I had to wait for the sweepers with tools and tighten the chain just to limp it to the gas stop, then hit the road to get back to Fisher. I was pretty bummed out! Might have to make the trek to Crowsnest, I feel like one more race this year. Nice pass by the way!

You forgot to mention the verbal abuse you had to take from Dude for being found on the trail broken down :blush:
