yesterday did the PACX townhall cross race. got the hole shot, no problem, and held back into the climb, and rode up he hill listening to Eric work his words on the PA. Had a nice race, under inflated my rear tire, made it hard to go hard. I ride with a heavy ass, and felt if I wasn't to careful I'd rip the treads off the rim. So I sat in the lead for a bit, then the two grey beards with better legs came by. I had a good race and worked hard, on the corners, and barriers. Hammered to the line to nip no-one but only to push myself as hard as I could. Got 3rd. Next week Granogue, I look forward to the bigger field and more competition. I'm learning a lot this year, I'm more comfortable on the bike, than I ever-been. Things are good, the pain? always good. I'm suffering. Cheers, d.
