High Altitude Classic
I met my buddy Bruce in Cloudcroft to ride the trails and watch him compete in the High Altitude Classic. Just for the heck of it, I signed up in beginner class with my rickety hardtail. Bruce ended up separating his shoulder on one of his practice runs and was in a dismal mood that night, but I was able to ride his Kona in the race the next day. I got 5th place out of 10, just ahead of our buddy Augur. After my runs, I grabbed my camera and a beer and hung out at a nasty ledge on the pro course, where I managed to snap this photo of Chris Boyce.
