Looks like a mucky Iceman is on tap. The field is top-notch again this year. Fluckiger, Ettinger, Kabush, Zandstra, Finsterwald …. After 6,000 amateurs complete the course, Drew and Mitch line up with the rest of the pro field for the muddy 29-mile march to Traverse City. Should be something!
Drew raced this weekend in Moab Rocks, a 3-day MTB stage race. Some awesome riding, including the Porcupine Rim, the Magnificent 7 trail and the new Captain Ahab. There was also one particularly long hike-a-bike, up Jacob’s Ladder (also called Jackson’s Ladder) out of Jackson’s Hole. About 500 feet, with your bike on your back. One site compares it to climbing 60 flights of steps. With a bike on your back. To see a brief video of the climb during the race, click here. It will take you to our Facebook page, where the video is posted.
