This was the first time The Husband rode this trail so he was not particularly happy after lap 1. He crashed somewhere along the loop!
Feeling much better at the end of lap 2, The Husband was in the groove...He was totally attacking the climb.
As I said, the finish is a somewhat steep climb. Just as he was coming around the curve to the finishing climb, The Husband's shoe came unclipped. It would take too much time to clip in and climb the hill so he improvised.
It should be noted that The Husband did, in fact, run past the bike you see in the far right corner and finished before him. I think the man was a bit unhappy about that. Everyone around cheered, though! In fact, The Husband's friends, who finished considerably behind him, even heard of the guy who ran his bike up the hill to the finish racing ALL THE WAY!
