Last Man Standing

Trail Rider Magazine just restored their web site which I stole the photo from. The event was "Last Man Standing" as I commented if the race was "First Man Whining" I could be a contender! Give her a look, sign up make an observation, it don't cost nuthin'.

zen: a grade so vertical that I would under an circumstance would be going down whether I wanted to or not.

It looks steep in the photo and photos never really show how steep a hill is. These are two of the best riders in the world and they are struggling.
Lots of people think riding bikes is easy, you have a motor, but lots of time having a bike is a liability and you could move faster on foot.
I'm sure all sports are like this, they look easy to an out sider, but the competitors are pushing the top of the limits.
Golf on TV still sucks though.

I think without the grass track sections the mega marathoner runners would have an advantage.Pushing a bike upwards of 250# is not for the meek. They had 100 qualifiers and then they had 3 for the night race which ran the 40 mile course backwards. Two finished. I do wonder what the fitness level of the the top 100 had to be, in the day light the course looked like something I wanted to run home to mommie for comfort. Not to mention reversing the course in the dark. I still think I could win if it was called the "First Man Whining".
