A short wrap up from a long RME Voodoo Fire

The first race of the year is always a learning experience and the 2011 Rocky Mountain Endurance Series race #1 was no different. The Oskar Blues crew was joined by my girl Marily from Outdoor Divas as we geared up for what was the first ever race for a few in camp. Cheers to Brian Spotts and Marily for jumping into a long race as it was Brian's first & Marily's second. They both left the race with that earned smile only a difficult and fun bike race can provide...they'll be back.
An unprepared shot before 70 miles and 5.5 hours of singletrack, Marily rocked the Half-Marathon.
The Marathin rolls out past the Dale's Pale Ale RV.

70 Miles of single track later and glad to be just about off the bike, whew that one hurt.

Get all the details from Mountain Flyer Magazine's coverage of the event HERE.

RMU put on a great initial event to the series that provided a ton of single track, a large field and a family style post race feedbag, raffle and awards ceremony. Looking forward to the next one, The Denver Fat Tire Festival which has a little somthin' somethin' for everyone. Hope to see you there.
