Crusher 2012

It was hard. The climbs are long and steep and the descent was just as hair raising as described (at least on a cx bike it was).  But probably the best supported race I've done.  The people of Beaver are Buena Gente and were so cool to come out and support the race. 

I like this sequence of shots because it shows me descending while my EFS gel is about to fall out of my jersey pocket.  Those washboard sections rattled it out.  I guess I should be happy I didn't lose a tooth.  I would need this EFS gel on the 2nd big nasty climb.  I would reach for it and discover it was gone.  With the next aid station over an hour away, I knew I was in trouble.
