27/9/20: A small turnout of enthusiastic Cross Country riders, braved a chilly, daylight saving enhanced, morning. And as they say it was all downhill from there. A sub-zero front swept thru with hail/rain/wind and hypothermic chill factors. The race was shortened to 1 lap and results are here. Thanks all for coming and supporting this years 25 Linger & Die MtB Series. More on the facebook page later…
