MTB Pictures

It has been a long time since i have posted anything!  This year i have not raced much – after walking the Camino de Santiago in April – i have competed in only a sprint triathlon.  I have been able to get out mountain biking a bit, and want to get back to some good training and hopefully some racing again soon.

Here are some great MTB pictures that were taken at various Rev3 adventure races, but the talented Bushnell Photograpy team of Laura and Alan Bushnell.
