|Dusk training at the Whale's Tails. Class is overrated anyways... right?|

Not late for class yet...
With snow looming over the weekend, race directors made the choice to cancel the Wicked Spooky Cyclocross Race to be held in Bennington, VT. Of course, in Burlington, we got no snow and had sunny skys throughout the day. The boys of UVM cycling ventured out to Catamount Family Center where we attempted to suffer and ride through the pain cave, straight on to the glory hole.

This was not an easy task, especially since three of the six riders are elite cyclocrossers, and the rest of us are well... out for a Sunday ride. Nonetheless, we managed to verbally abuse each other just enough to motivate one another to spend a good portion of Sunday afternoon suffering.

More specific to the suffering, we spent a good amount of time working on barriers and riding a steep runup in the middle of the woods. This involved riding over two logs on a decent incline. In addition to the runnup riding, we practiced bunny hopping barriers. Let's leave it at, I have no ups, just flips.
Overall, a great week of riding.
Arc hard, ride fast, go plaid!
