The track was muddy
This is just a small part of the track -- the whole thing is more than 10 miles long. Good riders can complete three to four laps in the two-hour race.
This rider has a GoPro camera mounted to his helmet and has captured exciting footage of the back side of mud.
Clear view, anyway
Some riders had tear-off goggles, letting them get rid of the front layer as soon as it's so mud-covered that vision is impossible.
