Barriers Are Back In

Bill Marshall's KLM Marketing Solutions staffers worked quickly in the "intermission" portion of Friday's schedule to ready the course for three more races in the afternoon.

Staffers dumped sandbag after sandbag into several inches of mud as the wooden barriers were put back in place. They had been removed after the first race of the morning when officials deemed that stretch of the course too dangerous because of the slick, icy terrain.

Contrast that with the sloppy muck that now leads up to "Chamois Butt'r Way" - the barrier section that runs adjacent to the Expo tent. As one competitor described it, "it's the kind of mud you step into wondering if your shoe is going to come back out of it when you pull your foot out."
