I raced it for the first time this year. It's a big time NRC race with some stiff competition and lots of climbing.

You can read my race report here.

I read that race report and I think I was in that little split on day 2 with you that caught the pack at the base of the climb. I flatted at mile 20 something and had no support vehicle in sight. I chased like hell for the rest of the race caught the pack just before the climb and blew up on the vertical.

That race was fun but I had some bad luck. My advise to anyone is to be patient during the race and practice your climbing. I know of at least 2 pro mountain bikers that were racing the 3's.
