The final stop of the NYCROSS Series found us in a really cold day, the coldest I’ve raced this year. It was still above freezing but the problem was the wind! This course is basically the same as last year. It has a long run up and a steep grassy climb. The barriers were in a different location and the log that debuted last year was there again. It was somewhat slick and as the races were going by, the course got slicker. The run up got worse and worse, but at least there wasn’t as much mud as there was in previous editions.

Northern Michigan in November. It can be 50 degrees and sunny, or 20 degrees with six inches of snow - I've experienced both, and everything in between at the classic point-to-point mountain bike race, The Iceman Cometh. This year was not a disappointment, while I like the 50 degree and sunny option, the epic conditions forecasted for 2014 were about to change the race into a mental battle, rather than the physical.
