Ok, here's the write-up for the Berryman Trail Epic MTB race. In short, I got the win, but it was touch-and-go for a long time -- right up to the very end.
For the record, it would be a great one for your first endurance event. Nothing too dicey technical-wise. If you're interested in this type of event, put it on your calendar for next year. Affordable. Beautiful. Great company.
