This wide and steep singletrack is the last notable climb of my fourth lap, and I’m guessing that it’s a little before 3am. Ahead I can see the wiggling cones of light and tail-flashers of a half dozen racers walking. I find the prone figure next to the trail mildly unnerving until a guy with a camera sitting next to him confirms that it’s no worse than a solo competitor napping. Right around then the stabbing pain of a cramp on the inside of my left leg suggests that I should join him. Instead, I try to stretch it out while turning the gears, and this causes a different cramp to shoot through my right hamstring. Standing up on the pedals to relieve that pain sets the left leg alight again.
