Bill and I just got back from Sun Valley where NEMO was a sponsor of the US Cycling Mountain Bike Championships this year. We had a fantastic 4 days and met so many great folks out in Idaho who were in town for the event.
The Crit was held Thursday night in Ketchum town center. Before the main event, there was a fat tire relay, perhaps the most entertaining event of the weekend. If there are any doubts on the levels of entertainment, see pictures below.
We were lucky enough to hang out with the Scott folks who rented out Wiseguy Pizza and made sure there was an endless stream of pizza and beer flowing at all times. This, and the unblemished/un-humid air of Sun Valley must be why I look so happy.
The elite men's and women's races were a bit more serious, especially with Rebecca Rusch on the line in the women's field.
And as expected, we were lucky enough to get in some great riding, time with friends, trail running, eating, and drinking here in Sun Valley.
