So, that is you?  If it is, how did it go?  I have never done any mountain unicycling and I feel like I never will.  I would like to hear more about it.

Isn't your mountain bike missing a wheel?  :P

Looks great!

Yup, that is me.
I did the 3.2 mile course in 26.04 minutes. I took first. Next year the course will be longer so I will have to continue to train.
A world champion came and road the expert course which was 27 miles. He finished under 3 hours. It was amazing.
MUni is amazing. I love it. You just have to get comfortable riding on lumpy ground. I have done it since my Chico days, but only recently have started riding a lot again.

Jose and Pepe could try to break Mike's unicycling-backwards-with-a-top-on-the-hand world record. I'm sure The Earl would love the challenge!
