9/27/14 – My first bike race in 14 years.

This past weekend I raced in my first ever cyclocross race and first race in 14 years. I didn’t do too well.  Passing is an insane bitch in cyclocross.  I got content near the back just trying to find the endurance for 3 laps.  It’s a lot harder than I expected.  Far harder than road riding, faster and almost as hard endurance wise as a mountain bike race.  But hell, I finished and I don’t have to worry about slipping in the rankings.  I got the feeling everyone expected me to do much better and I was kind of a letdown.  Perhaps I will do better this weekend in Chapel Hill.  I’ve never even seen that course, at a high school, so I’m not sure how to prepare for what it may have in store.
