Thanks for coming out to the Battle Royale!
135 racers came out for the Psycowpath Battle Royale on Saturday. Kris and the Cycle Works crew did a great job! I appreciate everyone's patience while we compiled the results. Look for complete results with lap times on Nebraska Cycling News or the Psycowpath website.
The weather and trail conditions couldn't have been better for the event yesterday. The rain earlier in the week kept the dust down and provided fast dirt. The course was very similiar to previous Battle Royale events, but the rock garden was cut short and long steep climb at the end of the course was bypassed this year (whew). The flash floods from the Spring rains changed all the lines in "The Gully" and it took a lap or two to find the sweet spot.
Did anyone crash in "The Gully"? I went down pretty hard once after the hitting a rock and having the handlebar fly out of my hands. Glad I had a helmet on! Buried my head into the dirt. Luckily didn't hit a rock.
Again thanks for coming out and congrats to all participants!
