12 Hours of Temecula – Photos from the Trail

Yesterday was an incredibly long day but so worth it.  Woke up at 5:30am, went to sleep at 12:15am.  Raced for 12 hours & drove for 3 in between.  But yesterday was also exhilarating and will reside in the memory bank for life!

My wife and I decided to form a 2-person coed team and see how long we could last.  Turns out, Samantha was the family MVP, completing 7 of our cumulative 13 laps, which was good for 3rd place on the day.  Together, we knocked out 114 miles off-road!  It’s been amazing to watch Samantha’s mountain biking skills and confidence develop over the last year and a half and yesterday not only did she ride longer than she ever had but she rode at night for the first time as well . . . Amazing!

Mr. & Mrs. A: 3rd place and crazy cat eyes!

Rather than write anything more, I thought I would post some pictures that I’ve manipulated, many of which are from my last lap at sunset while my GoPro was snapping pictures every second.
