2019: 2K19/16

2019

Holy cow!  16 big kid…big boss…awesome races in one season.

I started the season a sick as a dog, and it didn’t get better for a loooooong time.  Some fat, some gravel, and lots and lots of MTB.  I even busted out a few new races (Georgian Nordic, Turkey Point XCM, Sea Otter, Scrappy Badger, and the Reggie Ramble).
