In cross, when you stand by the tape, on a tough part of the course, you can see the rider's face, the effort, pain, commitment. I think I can almost hear that battle that is going on in the skull, "dig down deep, dig, dig,.... hold on to that wheel, no slipping back, ...it hurts, let up a little, NO! go"
I'm sitting out on the porch, listening to music, Jamie xx, enjoying the rain. and having a beer.
I came in 21st at Riverton Crit. I wanted to quit a lot of times. Other times I was up the road in a break. I'd hear people, and the sound bent, dopplerred, as we flew by. I love that race, its so hard, and the corners suit me well. I like the small town, folks clapping for the riders off the back.
It was a good day, and I was no where near the win.
colors are different, sound, I think that's John Minturn, the blur,...
One reason to race cross, just to do one race, is you'll get a bit of understanding, of what a rider goes through out there. The talk that goes on in the brain.
I like Riverton, love it, its almost like a cross race
thanks Historic Riverton Crit folks that put it on, it was Awesome! dlowe
