Green Means GO!
Wow...Now THAT, was a real mountain race!
Just a quick update for now as I'm still on the fly in Eastern Ontario...
Although my body and legs are slowly coming back to life after being violated by Ultimate XC's course, I'm still sporting a gigantic grin at the experience of having 'survived' my first crack back on the trail (A top-of-the-podium finish doesn't hurt either!).
If you ever thought you had run a course described as 'technical', think again...This beast was amazing, and it all started about 8km in as I jumped in a creek and started wading through belly-deep water, climbing over beaver dams, in/out of head high 'jungle' brush and up slick rocky river for about 4km! And that was just the beginning...
A few pics that I scammed off FB for now...More to come soon!
