The Team Dictator and I headed back to Chelsea after having so much fun a couple of weeks ago. BRR kicked some ass two weeks ago, today it was the trails turn to kick our butts. You'll notice in the pics that our Benevolent Dictator is not on his bike very often and that was the theme for the day. It was a fair fight until we stumbled across an old tough trail and it went downhill from there.

Big ring didn't notice the fresh deadfall.................
Big ring and Fritz have not been doing a very good job
convincing me of the benefits of going tubeless.........
An absolute battle of a ride, wet roots and really high humidity made
this one a real tough ride and I loved it. Success without the legitimate
possibility of failure is a pretty shallow victory, and today there was plenty
of failure to spread around.
PS. Chelsea should be a real treat in the rain.
