The course was about 10 miles of muddy singletrack and a lot of gravel road. Stroke of luck that this stage was heavy on the road section. Otherwise they may still be out there.
As it were, they overtook the team ahead of them and finished like the rest of the racers, covered in mud.
They cleaned up real well though in time for the sponsored trip to the local winery.
Tomorrow the weather is going to be hot. We'll see if they get a sponsored trip to the pool afterward.
