12 Hours at Dawn to Dusk-NOT!!!!!

Well, mother nature has ruled a second weekend in a row for me and doomed at an attempt to race. With heavy wet snow falling overnight in Gallup the trail system was too muddy to ride. This would have been my 5th year in a row doing the race. A bunch of us got the heck out of there while some people lingered to see what may happen for a later start time. Last I heard from Dan Durland it was an 11am attempt but also heard it was doomed to even go. No reason to tear up the trails with 400 people. The road out of the venue was gnarly for sure and my Tacoma and our little trailer barely made it out. It was a mud bog getting worse.
The drive back through the rez was nice until I hit the four corners area. Rico was getting dumped on and it didn't stop all day. We probably received a total of 10-12 inches of heavy wet snow.
