Physical and mental tests galore! Starting with a wicked case of insomnia I nearly bailed at takeoff but The Bug convinced me to drive 1.5 hours to ride 40 minutes in the cold, gusting winds of AppleCross in Winchester, VA.

Turns out this was the best course of the season. Already ridiculously challenging, a few more twists on some old friends made it even more challenging, but INCREDIBLY fun. Sadly, my GoPro failed on the start line as well as when I went back out again to shoot. However, you get the idea of what the course was like through the women’s and men’s races.
