Day 1:Not too much to say here, as all way pretty stressfull getting to the race on Friday. Rode ok, and ended up 13th. Good position going in to the last turn when it slowed down, had to try to get going again without much luck.
Day 2: woke up to heavy rain, the schedule that I had said I raced at 10am, I guess times changed and I really raced at 12:00. Bummer sitting with the kids in the van with it raining. They were troopers through it all and as race time finally arrived the rain was about done. Started the race at the front and about 3 laps in I was sitting in the top 10 when I hit a sunken manhole cover. Last thing I remember is my chest hitting the stem and then looking back to see a whole bunch of bikes heading for me as I was sliding down the road. Curled up in a ball and took a beating. Pretty much junked and SRAM Rival group and every piece of of my kit, yes even my helmet. See the road was like fresh chip seal so everything that hit the road looks like a cheese grater attacked it. Don't know if I'll race anymore, I do have another bike with me so if Scott can come up with another buckle for my shoe I'll see how I feel.
