October 3, 2019 – Washington Co., WI – It was an VERY muddy day for the Trail Sharks (Washington County Mountain Bike Team) on Sunday at Nordic Mountain.
It rained all night and all day. The athletes were racing in the mud and the course got worse as the races wore on.
Tractors were pulling out the trucks and campers while racers were pushing on. The Trail Sharks had many athletes running their bikes, slipping on the hills, and continuing to stop to pull mud and grass out of their gears.
Each one of the athletes did a great job completing the course with a smile and eating a LOT of dirt.
