Dust bowl 2015! I don’t know about anyone else but when I blow my nose its still coming out brown. Super dry and super fast course this year. Great event as always and a good first shock to the system getting used to race efforts early season. This was my first race back in a while and my first racing a geared bike in close to 10yrs.
Needless to say I was late with my shifts 98% of the time. But I was expecting to do worse than I did in the Expert Vet 1 field so I’ll take that as a “win”. I have accepted the fact that I don’t really do well against most of those guys unless the race is at least twice as long. Hopefully I’ll figure out how to shift by Millstone and the Marathon class will have a bit more attrition.
I was really pleased with the turnout from the team. I was trying to run around and get pics of everyone but probably only managed about 2/3. We had a great presence overall and it was great to hang out and talk shop at the team tent. Felt like everyone had a hard but fun day out on the trails. Looking forward to more of the same this season!
