This past Sunday Max, Joe, and I headed to Decorah, Iowa for the annual Decorah Time Trials. The race consisted of a 9 mile loop of technical singletrack with 2000 some feet of climbing. The trails were in great condition with some sweet log crossings and scary fast downhills. Max set out with a mission and set the fastest time of our crew, finishing 3rd in the 19-23 age category and 7th overall despite his obligatory 3 crashes. On a sadder note, I discovered a crack in the seat tube/bottom bracket weld on my trusty 2002 Trek 6700 singletrack slayer just before the start of the race. So naturally I gave her one more good flogging at the race before I have to put her down. Rest in peace.
