Main Street Bikes created a kick ass course that was interesting enough to keep my attention! Normally, I kind of space out while riding. To quote Mel, “I’m just doin’ my ride.”
Leading into the race yesterday, I was immensely scared of the “pump” section. I knew it would be a spot for great pictures, but I had no idea that so many people would crash or nearly crash there. When I saw one rider face plant on the pump section, landing on his cheek, that’s when my anxiety level increased. The first two times that I went through that section, I took a big breath at the top of the hill and then just went for it. By the last two times through, I was actually enjoying that section the most and had fun going through there!
Photos are posted on picasa. I had trouble uploading them to dotphoto (kept getting stupid error messages), so I finally gave up and put them on picasa instead. Enjoy!
