No Luck of the Irish For Me

Stage 3 Finish

I raced in the Mountain Bike Challenge Lough Derg Stage Race in Killaloe, Ireland last week.   I had a real shot at making the podium but some bad luck in the form of a dropped chain (made worse by my comical attempts of untangling it under hypoxic conditions) in Stage 1 and a flat 'tyre' in Stage 3 pushed me down to 13th overall.   I wrote a story about it over at, which you can read here

Below is my favorite photo from the race, according to the guy in the hi-vis vest I was the only racer to ride this climb.
