Today was the 3rd Annual Mile High Urban Cyclocross Chaos. We had 10 people signed up to do the Adaptive Handcycling Course but due to the weather that hit Colorado over the weekend, 4 of the riders could not make the trip.
This year we had two Lasher Sport All Terrain Handcycles, a Reactive Adaptations Bomber, a Reactive Adaptations Nuke, and an Explorer II that raced.
The course started out with a little snow on pavement. We went through a 1/4 mile winding path that led to a small pile of dirt that dropped us into a ditch. We rode along the ditch then did a 180 to ride up the other side. This is where they had large PVC tubes for us to traverse (the ones they had at angles gave the handcycles a huge challenge as we could not get enough grip to get over them). We jumped up onto the pavement again with 4 switchbacks that would drop us in and out of the ditch (as pictured here)
