12 Hours of Cranky Monkey

I never got around to posting about the 12 Hours of Cranky Monkey race that was a few weeks ago. I did this race in 2010 as a coed-duo team. In my memory it was extremely difficult, but also extremely fun. This year, my friend Diane and I raced as a duo-female team and the race lived up to all expectations. We got second–out of 2 teams. But we had a strong showing with 10 laps, which would have put us at a solid mid-pack finish in any of the coed or men’s relay classes. Not bad considering Diane had only been mountain biking enough times that she could still count her rides.



In 2010 I thought this was scary and didn’t ride it. Funny how not-scary-at-all it really is. Thanks to Bruce Buckley and Swim Bike Run Photography for the great photos from this race.
