Jingle Cross, Sunday

The light rain that fell Sunday morning was enough to make the third day of Jingle Cross the muddiest. Spectators found it tough to keep their footing out on the course and lined the climb and descent off Mt. Krumpit where only the fittest riders could make the climb and only the fearless managed to descend unscathed.
