We gotta piper down!! Cross is hard, really hard. I’ll never be good at it. After the NV/Como Park cross race, my first of the season, my new goal has become not getting lapped. I hope i can meet my goal at the State Cross Champs on 11/11.
I was fortunate enough to barely make the start of the Como Park cross.. a beautiful day had me in chore mode so time slipped past and I planned on a 2pm start. Thanks to Hollywood and the field of contenders for waiting for me. The start, as usual, was frantic.. I found my place and suffered for 2 laps when I found myself on my own. I rode pretty much alone the whole race except for a couple moments when I was being lapped. Early on I got stuck in the pedal on a dismount and pile-drived into a barrier. I though no one saw it. I was obviously wrong.
