Another Icycle in the books and this one was a true Icycle. Heavy snow and ice pounded the TN Valley and NC mountains, which caused the attendance to be really low. But as usual it was really fun to see friends, drink beer, and do a night dh run. This year British Ben’s light went out right before his run. So in typical Icycle fashion we did our run together off just my light. He had a mechincal and had to pull over so I finished by myself. Managed a third place and won some beer money.
The drive back was exciting to say the least. The NC road was scrapped and salted. The TN side was 1/2″ sheet of ice with s ow on top.
