Last year (check out my report here), Hillsboro was the sight of an epic battle between man and mud that still brings back fond memories for me both as a racer and as a photographer.
The puddles were over knee-deep, the energy-draining mud was sticky and thick, and the rain continued relentlessly through the day.
But even still, the Crusaders pressed on with smiles on their faces (after their race of course).
If the weather continues with rain in the next few days, a similar battle might have to be fought. If so, it will be something special to behold, and even more special to participate in.
