2014 Couch Potato
I really dug last years event, so when I got into Brevard, I had to contact Blue Ridge Adventures, just the week before their final weekend of the year! It started off with the Couch Potato. Since my shoulder has only been amiable to mountain biking for a couple weeks, helping out the seemed wiser than racing. Todd, Heather and crew, really foster a fun an festive atmosphere! From Tyler announcing every racer by name as they cross the line, furnished from BRA's crack timing staff and system, to the choice of either a pulled pork sandwich
or chicken and rice, served with kale, along with recovery beverages, to Nightrider and Industry Nine showing there cool toys.
I arrived at 7:30 am to snow accumulating on the grassy slope, that serves as parking for the cars. As you could imagine it made getting everyone parked safely, a little tricky at times, but we got it done without any mishaps.
I brought my GoPro, incase I had some opportunities to record.
