Saturday was a hot and humid morning for Flatwater Challenge time trial and cross country mountain bike race. The races were part of the Psycowpath Mountain Bike Series and hosted by Bike Pedalers of Lincoln.
The fog was starting to lift as the first riders headed out on the time trial. Grass was very wet, and the track was greasy. It took about 45 minutes to start all of the riders. I caught each time trial riders near the beginning of the course.
Next came the cross country race. The Marathon racers started onto the course about 10:30. The photo here is of the Marathoners climbing from the start.
Electronic race timing has sure sped up the posting of the results. Podium call for the first XC race was before the second heat of races started.
Category 1 and Category 2 races started at 12:30. I shot photos until the last riders finished their first lap. The heat was getting too much for me.
