Gravel, Ground

As previously pointed out, the first annual (I hope) Camp Shelby Gravel Grind was today. I did the 50 mile option, and I must say that it was about all that I could handle, maybe a tad more.  Several miles of gravel were loose like roller bearings, the climbs were killer steep, and the friend I was riding with had three flats before calling it a day and flagging the sag wagon.  Wouldn't have it any other way!  Well, except for the three flats/sag wagon part.  Will be back next year.  I rolled in well after the cut-off time to cheers and a hot bowl of chili.  A good end to a hard day on the CX bike.

Here are a couple of pictures:
Tanks.  I wonder which is heavier?

Meanwhile, down at the starting line...
