RACE REPORT #10 Last Chance at Castle Rock CAT 4/35+

My recipie for a great race. Get up at 5:30 on Saturday morning, pack all the gear in the car, drive 40 minutes to the course. Pay money, go through warmup routine, line up with 40 other bozo’s and ride fast. Then mix a little of this, with a little of that, and you get a big one of these.

Fun while it lasted – which was about 6 minutes to be exact. Didn’t even finish the first lap!! I was lazy and didn’t bring pit wheels, thinking that if I flatted I would just fix it and possibly line up for a later race in one of the other categories. I didn’t count on destroying my tire! Oh, well – that’s bike racing for ya.


My teammate Steve narrowly missed the win! He did snag a new pair of Rudy Project glasses by winning an intermediate sprint, though. Nice work, there.

I took out my frustration on the High Grade climb near my house and set a new personal record of 54:53.
