The day started slow and we got on the road a little late, it was race #2 of the season, but the light was awesome, and we stopped a couple of times for pictures. In fact I had to talk myself into going to the race over hiking and picture taking.
But race I did! The Boone race is always great, a challenging course and free pizza and beer make it an easy choice!
Sam’s picture of this year’s special treat, an of camber greasy turn downhill… lots of falls!
I was happy I rode it all 3 laps, no falls for me.
Me on the run up.
Celebrating my 44th place : P – thanks Sam for the pictures and cheering for me!
It was time for pictures after the race, the Blue Ridge Parkway was busy as near peak color was everywhere!
