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.
