 Nice work! I think this is one of the most overlooked events for the average Crankworx participant. I stumbled across it three years ago because our condo overlooked the stage. It was really fun! I highly encourage anyone who will be there to check this out.

 Definitely a mind-bending photo of Musselman Arch. The lighting of the riders from above/the side makes it look photoshopped until the perspective really sinks in. I may, or may not, have ridden over that arch in the '90s, wearing a tuxedo, but no photos so it didn't happen. Rode White Rim again last year and noted that the arch is off limits to people, on bikes or otherwise. Good luck to ya.
