Rode hard today, but not hard enough. I just couldn't hang on with the lead group after 3 laps and fell back to somewhere around 6-8th for the rest of the race. I ended up riding with Jeff Yielding and Dave B. for most of the race. It was good to ride with Dave, he's got a ton of experience and is stronger, but we have pretty similar riding styles so I was psyched to pedal with him. During the B races I usually could talk to whoever I rode with, A races are much harder...just about all my energy went to me legs.
Maggie rocked it again today on her mountain bike...although she's now definitely wanting a cx bike. Too bad we're both in med school and have to plan every little detail of our finances...cus it would be nice just to grab her a bike before the halloween races. Let me know if you know of any cheap 48-50cm cx bikes out there! My cannondale is a 50cm and a bit small for me, I may talk with Kona this week about a Major Jake and see if I can set up the Cdale for her.
