First Cx race in two year and a top five! 25 in field. Hit a car in the sand trap.

Hot, tough first CX race of the season. Cleveland stacks their fields like IHOP stacks their hotcakes. Those guys are fast and unforgiving. The trail was a majority single track with tight turns around the boy scout camp. There were very few fast straights as they were all uphill or after sandtraps. I crashed, then crashed getting up and lost so many spots I just ran the race at my own pace. My tubbies started to go and I had to pit. After a quick change I was off, but hardly had any power left.

It was great to get that bad race out of the way first.

Best I've ever felt at a cross race. Bunny hoppin barriers which probably lead to my Zipp blowing up. Oh well, lots more cross this year.
