Oh yes. It was a fun day of hard racing at Kanis Park, in the heart of Little Rock. The deafening echo of yelling and cowbells as a pack of harriers made their way through the double-sandpit under the I-630 was...most excellent. The course was a leg-wrecker. Recovery came in all-too-brief snatches, with the vast majority of time spent on the gas pedal. Ease off, and watch your friend ride away from you.
Conditions: Crisp and clear. The recent rains made the grass soft and sticky. A couple of tricky leaf-strewn corners took victims. The course had a little bit of everything, grass, gravel, pavement, some off-camber, some on-camber, and the aforementioned sand-pit that more than made up for the lack of vertical gain. Meanwhile, a motley crew of the fraternal, familial, and merely curious enjoyed the great weather, with pizza and potables provided by Vino's.
I managed to grab a couple of frames, but there will be more---still and moving---arriving in the next couple of days.
EDIT: My original post didn't give nearly enough credit to Trevor Edwards, who almost singlehandedly envisioned and realized this event. He had a great idea, and made it happen.
P.S. Arkansas State Championships are less than a week away.
