I'm not going to dwell on just how poorly my races went this weekend. I'm blaming it on bad luck and being sick but mostly recognizing there is still a lot to learn on my part. I'm motivated to correct things as the season goes on.
Also, if you haven't tried the Clammy Cross series, you are missing out. Great venues, great people putting on some very cool races. The Night Race was so great. The course was short but had some great features including a steep run up, singletrack, smooth grass, 5 barriers, a lot of tight corners, all while racing under the lights. It was fun to mix it up with Bob, Mark, Ben, Grizzly and others.
Waking up on Saturday, I didn't feel good at all but I promised Seth I'd take him to race his first bike race. He wanted to try a true CX bike so the good folks at Canyon Bicycles hooked him up with a loaner at no cost. The UTCX cross out cancer ride/race was going on at Wheeler Farm.
Then it was my turn. I lasted about 3 laps before pulling the plug. I had no power and had a hard crash on the gravel road which left me pretty frustrated. O well. That's racing. Just chalk it up to a bad week and bounce back I guess.
