A cyclist on the pump track portion of the 10km circuit at the J&J Cycle 8 hour Mountain Bike Classic. It was an amazing event with some even more amazing cyclists. My body will be in pain for days to come. Looking very forward to next year

“What makes a great endurance athlete is the ability to absorb potenial embarrassment, and to suffer without complaint. I was discovering that if it was a matter of gritting my teeth, not caring how it looked, and outlasting everybody else, I won. It didn’t seem to matter what sport it was–in a straight-ahead, long-distant race, I could beat anybody. If it was a suffer-fest, I was good at it.”
– Lance Armstrong
