Hey, it’s a bike race blog again!
Well, last night was the final stop of my bike racing reunion tour. Our state criterium championships, The Harvest Moon crit. The course was maybe a little short for my liking, but it was a good, fast, aggressive race. At only an hour, the right combo was never found and it was field sprint city. I felt pretty fast (what a difference a few weeks makes), but made some big errors on the last lap and you just can’t do that. Ended up 7th.
Great having the fam-bamily out to support.
Keeping in the bike race frame of mind, I also did the P-town Cross race Tuesday (of course). My skills still suck, but I could tell I was getting way better physically. From getting lapped twice(!) the first week, still getting lapped by the top 5 guys the 2nd, to finishing on the lead lap. In 10-15 years, I should be crushing these things!
Back in the real world, things are going great. Work is still really busy, but it’s going well. Kids are good. We’re due to go do a fall colors hike/lift ride at Sundance today, but we woke up to rain, so that could be on the back burner.
