2009 Monsters of the Midway

I’m glad the weather ended up being pretty nice today, but the forecast fooled me into leaving my sunblock at home.  I’m now paying for that mistake: my face is sunburned!  Thankfully it was cool enough out that I wore long sleeves and jeans today or the rest of my body would be burned, too.

Several people asked me whether I was racing today and my immediate response is always the same: hell no!  I’m afraid of crashing and refuse to risk it in a road race or criterium.  Besides, I’m just way too slow.  Today reinforced my fear of crashing with the three ambulance visits that I saw as the result of three different crashes.  I know that at least two racers were transported to the hospital.  I’ll stick with taking photos from the sidelines until cross season, thanks.  

Team MS had a great showing today!  Jessica Hill won the Women’s 3/4 race.  Erik Weibe finished in the 9-man break in the Masters 30+ race, and Cliff Golz took 6th in the Cat 4 race.
