Well another race another sore spot (or two). If it ain't one thing it's another. Crash and burn. Down and out. Oh well there's next time.
Do you have the idea that maybe the race didn't go so well? Yup. On my second lap down the banked wash my back cassette locked up thereby locking my chain and the Arantix bucked me off. Actually we slide along a ways together. She's OK. As I took the back wheel off, the cassette spilled all over the ground. I was able to get it together and do a mile or so and it did the same. I was done. I got back to the start and realized there was blood all over my arm. I got stitches that evening before I went to work. These are some benefits of being in the business.
Dot got first (I told her so). And the rest of the team seemed to have had many odd mechanical issues. All in all it was good weather and it was good to see the team again.
I rode off the frustration today up Clark's trail (yes, it's open) and more. I must say she climbs well! I had a great ride!
