Base of Grouse Mountain race day photos by Steve Yau
“Ah Grouse….one of the more challenging sections, both physically and mentally. Gnarly roots, inconveniently placed rocks, oh and a pretty intense climb to spoil any hope of digesting that Nutella sandwich you crushed at Cleveland. Also, Nancy Greene…WTF? I attempted to conceal myself in some foliage in an effort to avoid being the target of unbreakable hexes and the occasional middle finger. My camera betrayed me with the sound of its shutter clicking away, but in a strange twist of events, I found myself greeted by ear-to-ear smiles, and the only finger flashed my way was that of the thumb variety. I shouldn’t be surprised, after all, this is the Knee Knacker!” … Steve Yau, 3 time Knee Knacker finisher
