-Bend is awesome. -I sucked quite badly at Pickett's Charge (word to the wise, there is a reason everyone sprints the first 3 miles of fire road - it's the only place to pass on the ENTIRE COURSE). -Sarah won $75 by getting 3rd in pro women! -I love how my FS 29er rides, but good god is it heavy and slow. -Mid-pack expert/semipro riders (my companions) can't handle their bikes to save their lives. It was like a cyclocross race out there.
Edit: Here we are looking classy at TJ's graduation.
