The 2016 SSCXWC Women's finals wasn't all just rainbows and unicorns, but included skeletons, cocktail dresses, super heroes, a quick-learning Stanford grad, a retired pro and longtime singlespeeder with some fresh near-title misses, all topped off with a top hat-wearing dollar-hand-up-offering naked guy.
Yet all of them were troopers out in Sunday's heavy mud of Kruger's Farm in Portland.
Photographer Mike Estes wallowed in the mud of Kruger's farm to capture the action of the women's race, and sent in the following photos for our readers' enjoyment. See our favorites and a full photo gallery below.
Jessica Cutler took the win over Angharad Porteous and Sarah Sturm.
