Stafford Lake CX
Epic. Came out Sunday with my manager LCA, to find a brutal course that was fun, fun, and a bit fucking hard at that.
Lead out on lap 1, sitting in 4th or 5th, crashed once, came back up through the pack with some good passes on the barriers of all places. Turned out on lap 3, I was riding in 3rd only to be passed on lap 4 and have to defend my line from losing the position on one of the last turns. 8 races into cyclocross and I finished 4th, my which is also my second top 5 of this year.
Compared to some other races, and series, Stafford Lake was great. The attitude and energy was incredibly friendly and mellow. No shouting, no shitty timing and scoring, in fact results were up within half an hour, with lap times. So many thanks to the promoters for a great event, my great great girlfriend for supporting me, and Freewheel for helping me be there.
