On Sunday some riders did 65 miles and 14,500' around Whiskeytown Lake as part of the Pain Train Endurance Race. I road my moto around to get some shots, the day was epic and warm to say the least, I only shot until around 2pm because of the 3hrs of sleep that I got the night before, maybe next year I will be able to get up Shasta Bally for some more epic scenic shots.

Grassroots events like this is how Mountain Bike Racing got started, part of this course even touch on one of the first organized Mountain Bike events, The Whiskeytown Downhill.
