I forgot how much elevation there is at the Liberty Lake course. The grassy inclines don't look nearly as steep as they are and they suck the life out of your legs. Well, my legs. The spiral deathtrap they usually have at the far end of the course was replaced with a chicane made of straw bales. The run-up is steep and long but there were a number of riders who were able to ride it. There was the obligatory path into the lake, which resulted in the best photos.
