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.
