Avocado, red pepper, lemon & raw corn fritters. I'm gonna take a wild guess & say that no one else on this Kentucky state park shore has a similar feast...

AOA Mayhem Enduro

The 2nd race in the Ohio Power Series put on by 331 racing out at The Wilds. 5 time trial mountain bike stages with recovery paths in between. A really great way to race. Though we weren't the fastest team, we had a blast. I hit jumps and had more confidence in the 29er's on the roots (much better than my previous adventure to the wilds). Misjudged a jump as a roller on the 4th stage and smashed my face off of the other side, but you'll have that sometimes...
First groups heading out:

The guys from Paradise Garage were really nice and crushed it a bit.
I got some socks as a consolation prize for actually finishing and the guy who cleaned me up gave me his Dirt Rag bottle for my trophy case...
Here's my face the next day, then 6 weeks later... It was kinda numb the whole summer...Untitled

Stony Creek 12hr/ice cream mania

So Team Jeni's Ice Cream traveled to Stony Creek park north of Detroit to partake in Fun Promotion's mountain bike race. We had a 3-women 12hr relay team, coed 12hr relay team, and 2-man 6hr relay team.
12 hr Stony Creek Race
The course was fast and fun, smooth single track, wide 'bridges', super fast gravel, quick hills.  I accidentally got off track on the first lap and did almost 16 miles instead of the 10.5 or so, but it was a fun lap and I finished it in 1:33. The next two were much harder than I would have ever anticipated, I definitely didn't intake enough (barely any) calories in the 2 off-hours between laps. My next laps (~10.5 miles) came in at 1:16 and 1:12. Yeesh.
My relay teammates: (I did not receive the same tag-out between laps)
I asked our sponsor for a banner for our tent. While they couldn't drum one up last-minute, they gave us 180 pints of their amazing icecream to hand out. It was really cold:
This flavor was described by one of the race officials as 'evoking memories of his grandmother's banana bread.'
Racers love ice cream:
Post-race tent-feast mainly consisted of: pork skewers, seitan, beer, ice cream, Twizzlers.
