First 6 Hours of Maple in Duncan was probably one of the harder races I've done in a long time, steep fire road climb followed by fast, technical, rough and steep descending. You know it's a great trail when the downhill section takes twice as long as the uphill section!….though it's easy to forget just how much climbing there is on the downhill. A 9 km lap with approximately 400m of climbing each lap, you are either going uphill or downhill.

Couldn't have asked for nicer weather for an event like this either. Lots of sun and a little sprinkle to keep things cool. 6 laps done (one with my puppy and half with Regan) and I couldn't hold on to my handlebars any longer. A day later and everything hurts and so stiff haha, but so worth it :)
This last month a bit, since Sea Otter, has been extremely busy…gaaaah, too much work and 60 plus hours of OT :( Definitely putting a crimp in my lifestyle! Last week I was in Burnaby for a work course and made the best of it bringing my road and track bikes :)
