2012 - Bay Area Super Prestige #1, Candlestick

Very hot! Raced with a water bottle in my jersey and drank it all.

Did shitty on the first lap fighting for position, ended up near the back of like a 70 rider field. Settled in on the second lap though and started passing people. I was much smoother then the last race. No crashes and stayed on course. Skills are slowly coming back.

Few photos my wife took:

2012 CCCX #2 Cylocross

Killer Bs!

Had legs but no skills. Downhills and barriers felt fine, but those sharp and sandy corners killed me. Kept trying to take them like a crit racer. Fail. Crashed once, over cooked a number of other corners and went off the course. Broke through the tape twice. Ended up 13th out of 22. Ouch.

Need to work on slowing down for the corners, taking them sharper and accelerating out earlier. Explosive.

Lots of fun though! Looking forward to brushing up on my skills and doing some serious CX racing this season.
