|Since you're posting I take it you aren't going out today either. Hey, how many you reckon will turn out?|

|I never registered. I just got back from an overseas vacation and I'm not an experienced world traveller so I decided that jet lag was too much of an unknown for me so I laid off.
I just drove over to see how it's going. Looks like they've had some drop outs but still lots of riders out (all looking cold).
I'm sure they'll have fun regardless.

|The turn out was pretty low,and they will probably have alot of food left over. I waited until 9:00 before heading out,and they closed the century route at 8:30 so I opted for the metric,it looked like the sky was going to open up any minute. I don't think it got above 40o all day and heading into that wind all wet and sweaty was bitter cold. TCBC always puts on a good ride though no matter what the weather.|

|I have never been so dirty in my life. People I know didn't recognize me at the finish. You couldn't tell what type of bike I was riding. I had to clean things I've never cleaned before. I had my helmet (without the pads) in the sink next to my Camelback (not the bladder part).
Had fun though. :-)

|Mid Atlantic series. Same effects for mud. Had 4 inches of mud to climb steep hills. Bike weight over 50 pounds on the climbs and had to pull cakes of mud to get clearance.
I haven't race mud this bad since early 90's when all spring races were muddy. They left us dip our bikes in the pond to clean the mud off.
Now if I can remember what I overhauled the last time I got the bike this muddy. I bet my Sugar weights over 30 pounds now (don't have many drain holes).
Hope you all had fun on the rainy sunday in the east.
