Wild and Wonderful days
The days are so sweet right now in West Virginia. We have great great local racing with the Appalachian Classic in Grantsville. This race is so cool because they hug you when you register, give you a pint class, a t-shirt, provide you with some fun wooded singletrack, then feed you and if you win they give a dollar amount that is very close to what you get if you win a norba . The next race was West Virginia State Championships in Davis. Roger and Matt made a three hour race out in the Badlands over the bridge off of camp 70 road. Its so amazing how much of an effort they and Canaan Valley Institute have put into to trails there. Its so good to see mtbing is taking a positive turn. Of course the race was super muddy. It was a dirty, dirty affair. The great thing about riding in Davis is the mud is always rideable, power sucking, but doable. The race was catered by my favorite pizza place on the Planet....Sirianni's. Thanks Mike and Sandra for the best garlic pizza ever.
Then it was the Bucshi wedding at Elk River. I loved the humor and happiness at Paul and Megan's wedding and of course they both brought sexyback to Slatyfork. We had a great mtb ride on the tea creek trails eariler in the day.
Some friends are building a cabin on Spruce Mtn., about 8 miles from the highest point in WV.
