Dusty, dry, dirty and fast singletrack trails is the best way to describe this race! Probably one of the best, if not the best, singletrack races I have had to date. Jumped on the tire of a guy in a small group that lead us through a good 10 or so miles. Then had to play some catch up before I landed on the back tire of the first male fat bike for the 2nd half. Ran out of water with 5 miles to go. At least 5 crashes right in front of me that took me to a sudden halt. Luckily I escaped unscathed but it did slow me, and required effort to restart and get refocused. Cramped up during a surge around 5 miles to go, but dig deep, fought my way back then passed the first male fat biker a mile later and never looked back. Finished first overall fat bike class and 7th female overall. A great day to support our local mountain bike trails and Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association!
