This week, we are taking a look at an image by Joe Cattoni (regularjoe on Flickr | RegularJoe Photography). It is an image of racers at the Snake Creek Time Trial that really illustrates the grind of winter mountain bike racing in my mind. Mud, cold weather and brutal trail all in the pursuit of the best time over 17 or 34 miles. The Snake Creek Time Trail series is known to completely ruin people as they push themselves to the limit in less than ideal conditions.
