I didn't think it was so slick, but it was chilly. And it got colder through the day. It was 39 at the race start, but closer to 34 by 2pm.

Re: Blackjack Enduro

34 could hurt if not prepared for sure.

Re: Blackjack Enduro

Hey, you did great! For your first race just finishing this one is reason to feel good about it. It was a tough race. I was on row 6. Would have been a hoot to ride the extra test section but the regular course wore me slap out. My hind end may never be the same again.

They did the best job of marking trails that I've seen at any enduro...which was a darn good thing considering how tight the woods are. I'm not familiar with how big their club is but most other races have goggle wipes, water, etc. at the check ins. That would be a nice touch for future races up there.

Rob, it was physically punishing. Guys warming their hands over the exhaust while waiting to go and low temps but sweating from head to toe made any stop a shivering situation. They had the test section times set pretty close so that jake-leg riders like me had darn little time to show up at check-in and blow a little bit before having to line up and go. This was a loops course and the trails got beaten up so that every little root across the trail had a mini whoop around it. Very tight tree dodging with very few spots to stand up. There was precious little technical riding...just a non stop dodging of trees.

One of my friends quit before the last test section. When I latter made it back to the trailer, the EMT's were in his rig watching him soak up a bag of IV fluids. He just plain lost his mind there for a while. Dehydration is serious stuff.

blah blah blah, you would have probably trophied. Regarding that guy who needed the fluids, I have seen many folks not drink enough on cold days and get into trouble. Always hydrate more than you think you need regardless of temps.
