Cyclocross is a cold muddy sport

Just some random pictures from the cyclocross race at Catamount today. Tough conditions! The guys were hypothermic at the end of the race, it's hard to get 'warm' and make a big effort like that... and then stop, the body's temperature plummets...I have some first hand knowledge of this. Hats off to Josh Dillon (winner) and everyone who toughed it out.
