Extreme Conditions

I know I’ve posted this photo before, but I was looking at it at 100% and wanted to share. The athletes in the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race endured unthinkable hardships to complete the race. On the biking section the first day of the race they faced gusts up wind up to 70mph that pelted them with rocks and debris and threatened to carry their bikes away. In the clost up photo you can see the rocks flying through the air. That’s full size gravel, not just small pebbles. I was also getting pelted in the back of the head while capturing this. Ahh, I can’t wait for next year!
