This is a race that I missed due to an infection. The up-side is that I got to take some great pictures. This is the Galena Grinder, quite possibly the best race of the summer and one that I am looking forward to thee most for 2008.
We arrived at the location on a Saturday afternoon. We had stopped in Stanley for some pictures and awesome blueberry smoothies and shakes. I tried to do a pre ride in the area but could not sit on the saddle. That night I had to do emergency work on the undercarriage to stop the infection from forcing a emergency room visit.
I was able to enjoy the weekend due to the Browns brining me along and putting up with my fever. I just hope I didn’t ruin their weekend.
