I pulled the rest of lap 1 and let him pull most of lap 2. There was a large group of 5-6 back there but we were steadily pulling away and I figured it was going to be a race between the two of us.
incredible SSCX bike!
We immediately got out of there to get food during the 3 hour gap between races. However, despite ordering at 12:05 I still had no food at 1:16. When the food did come out I decided it was too close to the 2:45 start and I just ate a couple of gu packs. I started well in the Elite race but slowly faded throughout. The only strong part for me was the technical log section into tight corners. Without that section I would have probably wound up last! It hurt/sucked to not be able to even hold wheels on pavement. I'll be sleeping more, eating better, not racing prior to my upcoming goal races.
Sunday found me at Ripon College
And what is this?
