12 Hours of Tsali

My good friends Paul and Caroline were up in Bryson City, North Carolina for the 12 Hours of Tsali race this past weekend. Caroline was competing, and Paul was along to push out a few odd laps as time allowed, and to offer support and encouragement as necessary, (translation, his job is to clean and maintain the bike!) So a nice weekend of mountain biking and camping for them, and you know they had to send their Floridian friend a scenic picture to rub it in.

No word how Caroline did yet, but I'm sure she laid waste to the females and probably chumped out a few dozen dudes to boot. She's a beast.

Founders Bridge where the AT crosses the Nantahala River. BYOB!

She finished 4th in the women's solo field with 9 laps, around 94 miles. She finished one out of the money. The wench who beat her caught her on the last lap.

On her 8th lap, she was 33rd out of 64 racers. She kicks ass!

See? I wouldn't want to run into her in a dark alley...she'd pull a vein out of my neck and beat me with it!
