I think, that I am a better crit racer than cross racer.
I hear once in a while, that, racing is to serious.
Last weekend, was a well needed, late season, gap in the whole racing calendar hole filler, do what you want/need cross race. I took a back in the pack start, to force myself to work-up. I figured out to make myself attack after the run up, to keep up or push my pace a bit, because, maybe I'll need that mind set at Nationals.
I did not get up to the front, by any means, for some reason, I'm a bit off the front, my lap times, are longer, I'm not as fast,
I look forward to getting back into the crit racing, and have not done any tight fast group riding since going down.
I look forward to getting up early Tuesday mornings and doing the East Park Sprints.
The Great Valley 30 on Thursdays.
The effort, hard breathing, pushing on,... inside me, there is a man, a wee little man, smiling, laughing, getting the biggest kick out of what he is doing.
Post race, end of local season. Masters.
I have fun racing, I love it. I hope to do some Mtbike racing a bit more, lots of crits. and I hope, to be at CX Nationals, when I am 80 years old. Fighting to be the champion. It might take me that long to figure this cross stuff out.
Onward Hoe! to Asheville we go.
