Bridge issue is probably due to when the EMS extracted my friend. 6 burly men carrying a woman on a backboard over the bridge. I was behind them watching & the bridge was definitely under pressure. Didn't notice that it was partially collapsed tho.

Rode the tree farm this morning- one decent-sized tree down plus still lots of mud. No personal records for me but did get a 3rd best on the technical loop so not a complete loss I guess.

I don't recall the exact spot but I think it was either just before or just after the pump track. It was still half connected about 20-30' up, leaning down over and onto the trail. I had to go around to the left of it. Size I'd say 6-9" in diameter by a guess.

I'm at 10 and Meadowbrook and there was no evidence this morning that it rained during the night.

I'm between Gordon and the Farm and the most we got was a light drizzle at best. Nothing that would impact trail conditions or even get past the canopy.

Majority of trail was fine. Some muddy spots in the usual areas after a rain. There is a large branch down across the trail just after the double log pile climb in expert loop.
A beautiful day to ride. Rather surprised at the lack of people riding out there today.
