    DiscountedCycling.com is giving away $100 worth of Tri-Flow products. In the spirit of giving away lubes, degreasers and cleaning products, we want you to post up your dirtiest biking photo. Whether it's you, your bike or your trails, show us the dirt, mud and slime you ride in.
    --








    Our friends at DiscountedCycling are generously offering up $100 worth of Tri-Flow products for our most recent contest.

    What's that, you say? You don't need $100 worth of drip lube? No sweat: Tri-Flow makes a bunch of different products, including grease, cleansers and degreasers. Or, hell, you can use the $100 towards your very own 55-gallon drum of teflon lube.

    Check out their various products here:

    http://www.discountedcycling.com/brands/Tri%2dFlow.html?sort=bestselling

    Once you've decided what you want, post up your filthiest biking photo. Whether it's you, the trail, the bike, or something else, we want to see the muck, the mud, the dirt, the grit, and everything else that you have to clean off your bike at the end of the ride.

    Update: Contest closes August 9th. Contest extended until August 13th!

    I see you suffered too at Windham. :D


    Here's from the 2009 Windham GES race after my race run. The bike was washed right before that run because the wheels wouldn't turn:


    After that race I got 5.10s. I fell off at one steep muddy part because my shoes did not grip my pedals and then simply could not stand up enough to get back on the bike.

    yup! suffered is right, got banged up pretty bad in my race run, crashed on my head and had a concussion. Got up and still passed my 30-45 second rider in front of me!

    mid crash, a log stopped me by my neck/head!

    I don't ride in the mud, it parts before I go through so my shiny bike does not get all dirty.

    I think i have the winning pic on my work computer. Mud in Utah is rare. When we get it, it's like clay. It just packs up until you can't roll your bike anymore. I'll have to check my home computer when i get back from San Diego tomorrow night.

    Here we go. Me and my dog had to ride 5 miles in this crap. We don't get much mud in Utah, but when we do, it's like clay and you can't even roll through it. I had to push my bike downhill, sliding around on what seemed like disco boots with about 20 pounds worth of mud on me and about 35 pounds of it on my bike. I could barely lift my bike up to put it on the hitch rack. I had to have my fork retuned, all of the cables replaced, the brake fluid had to be changed, and my chain was never the same.




    My dog Raiden was ready to fight the predator after that ride. This pic was actually taken only half way through the ride.



    You can only imagine how i looked when that stuff got flingin. I was lucky i had other clothes in my car that i could put on when i got to it.

    Oops, I forgot to update the thread.

    The winning shot was from CoyoteRun with the frankly miserable looking experience of riding through, and being covered with, not only mud, but what appears to be snow everywhere and some awfully cold looking water.



    Thanks for all the entrants, we'll do another contest soon!
