Lutsen was one of the most scenic courses ever, loved it. About 50% gravel and 50% trail a great mix. The trails were a bit wet as expected after the recent rains but I was able to ride everything. Those 29ers really go thru the mud. The lead out with 300 mtn bikers was cool. Had one flat at mile 73, on the buggiest part of the trail. Felt good thru out the race no cramping at all. Finished with a climb up the ski hill.
97 miles 8 hrs and 11 minutes.
