The Dingo CX weekend provided a great finale for the 2014 Georgia Cross season. After several years of drought, GACX has seen more rain than most care to this year. Heavy rains Friday night and into Saturday morning left the flat parts of the course at Hayes Chevrolet in Alto under 3-6 inches of water and the rest a muddy mess. The only change for Sunday was that the thin mud turned to peanut butter mud. The course was slightly more rideable on Saturday. A great time was had by all. There were hand ups, cheers, and much heckling. Dingo CX was an epic end to a great year!

Congratulations to the Overall Winners for the 2014 Georgia Cross Series!

Day two might have been faster without a bike.
