Teammates: Ron G, Mike M

This course was the ying and yang of racing surfaces. Some really bumpy nasty dry dirt and grass to rattle all fillings from your mouth. And a schweet smooth and fast velodrome to rip up and practice your banked high speed turns. In between… well… there was something in between those two sections but I don’t recall.

Ok, play by play, here it goes:

  • Start!
  • Bobble and crash to the left of me
  • Bobble and crash to the right of me
  • Punch through the middle
  • Chase the group of 15 that missed the crash
  • Bounce around the bumpy section
  • Drop into the velodrome and rip it up
  • Drop out of the velodrome
  • Transition back to the dirt
  • Repeat steps 5 through 9 for another 5 laps
  • Finish

    Whew.

    That was hard.

    I need to work on my intervals.

    And I need to stop smiling so much while racing (thanks Jon S. for catching me goofing off!).
