This is hard

Being a counselor I am a good listener.  It is hard for me to be the talker.

20 years of Michaux Maximus

I haven't done all 20, but there was a fellow out this weekend that had.  Thinking back the first time I did do the Maximus was its first year in 1990.  I remember it being super challenging for me with terrain that I had not encountered before.  At that time I was still in undergrad in Salisbury, MD, the sandy flat lands.  From that point on I knew that I wanted to ride in Michaux whenever I could and boy would I love to live there.  Low and behold my wishes came true.  Michaux has been my local riding ground for the past 20 years. It was not until 1996 that I actually lived amongst the forest, but until then I made a trip to the forest often.  For the last 6 years I have lived outside the forest, but still remain in close proximity by bike or car.  It is a 85,000 acre forest that begs to be explored.

Dragon's Tale report and results

First race in the books.  Got some serious climbing in mixed with fun, fun descents.  It was what you can expect from a SMT event.  Smooth and dialed.  Great time, Great people, and Great Trail!  Thanks to all that helped pull it off.
