This was about half way up one of the biggest hills during practice.  Notice the deep rut where water eroded down to the valley as Roger DeCoster works his magic.

Adolf Weil was smooth as can be while Kent Howerton trys to cut ahead of him.


Jimmy Ellis looks really tired after trying to climb one of the muddy slopes.

At this point in the race Billy Grossi has Brad Lackey closing in on him.  He is cross rutted and trying to correct as the crowd encourages the two to go for it.  Some how Grossi stayed upright.

For many riders just to survive a few laps had to be extremely tiring.  Their bikes weighed twice as much as normal from all the muck.
