Fried Melons With a Side of Dirt @ Lumberjack

Adam, Bryan, Lee & Scott geared up and clipped in to take on the challenging 100 miles and brain boiling heat of the Lumberjack 100 this past weekend. The day started off well with fantastic course conditions as the team chipped away at their goals to tame the 100 mile beast. By lap two, the tires of the 400+ riders began to unearth sand and roots hardly noticeable the lap prior as the course conditions deteriorated. Heat and hydration not only a became significant factor of performance but, made completing the distance a feat which fell out of the grasps of many. Unfortunately, including two of the PrecisionMTB team members. Lap three was combination of survival, mental fortitude and concentration to navigate the now significantly compromised trail and battle the oppressive heat and humidity. After a solid effort by all, those that were able finished and collect their finishers patch were covered head to toe in dirt and dust and wore beaming smiles of accomplishment over a hard fought battle.
