Chris Sheppard (Haro adidas) sent us a brief report of today's race
Today we attacked a massive climb three times totalling over 6000 ft of climbing. Start finish was at 8500 ft. Plenty of single-track. A massive lightening and rain storm delayed the start of the four cross `til tomorrow.
I had a major mechanical on a high speed double track descent at about 60km hr. Somehow I rode out of a high side and thus averted death. Finished off the life changing experience laying a hundred foot skid into a ditch.
Short track tomorrow, hope the legs are there.
