Once again, I’ve come back from the last big race of the mountain biking season and tried to forget about all things bike related. My hiatus from biking didn’t last long this time as I quickly got wrapped up in the excitement of cyclocross racing. Next thing you know, I’ve got a cyclocross bike and I’m giving my first race a shot this coming Saturday.
A quick note about the Shenandoah Mountain 100: (dirty faced pic of the finish below.) I can’t even begin to explain how amazing the volunteers were at this race. Folks weren’t kidding when they said that the volunteers do everything for you but ride your bike! Unfortunately, it was not a great course for a single speed and the gear that I selected. Although I suffered, I DID survive long enough to finish…13 hours, 25 minutes and 43 seconds. DONE!
