Go Away Mud...

After the mud-fest at the Bone Bender race I was hoping for some dry trail this week. Since the trail steward for SMP is out of town, I volunteered to check the trails in his absence and keep them closed or open them if possible. Today I spent a good hour out there trying to de-berm some areas and do some other work to get the water off the trail. The more I walked the more water and mud I ran across. It was overwhelming. I had hopes to get her open for the Specialized Demo Day tomorrow. That's just not going to happen. Here are a few photos to prove my case...what a mess!
On a good note I did get in a few good laps at a local DRY trail, SWOPE. Man, that place is an arse-whooper! If you ride out there a few times a week, you will be STRONG!!! Tomorrow is the Gods Country Duathlon and MTB race at the Lawrence River Trail. They are calling for rain, so lets keep our fingers crossed that it misses us and that we get to race!
