Not cold for long...

Yes, it does end.

Wait up? Nope.

Milltown or bust it!
LCR likes rutts.

Wonder Woman will borrow a gel, then drop you.

Quality family time...

Don't give Jim no lip. My guys love Peal Jam & Schwalbe.

All good maps have North arrows...

Details are over here... LML RACE LINK

Wasn't counting on legit Winter conditions, but will take it over cold soup... Finish quick and you wont have to taste it...

Plan 8. 
Bring your graveled ice game... I know, there is still snow singletrack and fun rutts to ride... You can do that on Sunday, or next week for that matter.

"I got first tracks on the rock!", said FmrX. {How'd you do that with a bad shoulder I pondered. Whaatdoyoumean?}

MotherNature Cookin Something Special

Question. Has this snowbike singletrack weather been great or what!?? 

(-most like to post bikes, bike parts, training regiment, and feats, I prefer to post about junk to ride)

Lebanese Serpent Log
Lebanese Serpent Log- 5 attempts, 5 fails. Made it all the way to the iced exit. Could have removed ice, but that'd be winter cheating. Humbled, made my mark, let it be known "LCR" was there, and just moved on.

10 day forecast is looking perfect for an iced gravel race.

Conditions Saturday are going to call for studs, super knobs, or studs+fat. (you've been warned)

Thinking on this, I could proclaim the "Iced Gravel 81 Mile World Championship."

Will post up final comments on the LML RACE LINK later this week.

REMINDER: Park just North of Harry's in the Walmart overflow lot. Race starts promptly at 8AM, swag you bring it and we swap during social hour at Harry's Cafe. The quicker we start the sooner we beat what MotherNature is cookin...

REMINDER: We are attempting to do something greater than a bike race... FUNDRAISER LINK

Cuyuna Whiteout

Good times up nort... Yaakeee trail in mint condition, road it all both ways actually/ Timbershaft backwards. Fast paced race out at the Sagamore trails, so fast Horns got caught copying Goos' aero roadie tuck, pt. And ice racing on the Serpent Lake. New Guy CF Dan with the victory!

Not CF Dan, but "Riddler of the Ice" was he.

Ice race was the highlight. Switched out the low end Nates for my home brew 200 screws/ tire Endos. Had a blast attacking and being attacked. Couldn't corner, but keep the bald tires straight and it was a missle.

Richy trying to pay me back... after I got him first! Point.

Grapefruit fancy beer... Habs coulda lapped me.

Only regret... The Yeti lives!!! But I never got a picture.

Oh yeah, race results... Ah whatever... Consistency is the game I guess, 8th in the xc race, 4th in the ice race, and I think 4th in the drag race... But some where saying, you were the first fat in the ice races. Lame, not down with handicapping. But will for you, your fat and the 80+ miles of mystery LML.

LML- Do you think 3 weeks will allow clean, ice free gravel like the past 3 March Springs? I don't think so... Be prepared! Gravel cross bike, mtb bike, SS bike, or fatbike, which will be the best weapon on the day???

NOTE: I'm devastated by what I missed out on over the weekend. So I was out riding and racing instead of sitting in front of my computer and I miss out. Getting myself fired up just typing this, better stop now... Argg!!!
