snakebite cross pics



first lap shot, getting ready for the first dismount of the race - straight into a sand/mud pit.



another first lap shot, coming out of the sand/mud pit.



and still running out of the pit, in second position, chasing nate.



now, i have dropped down to 4th at this point, roughly 1/2 way through the race.



the gap goes up, so i chase....



and chase...



and chase...



and chase...



until i catch paul and nate...



and then i attack, and immediately open a gap



heart rate is screaming, and i build up a gap in the sand/mud pit area as i run full speed through it. i flail through the mud, slide through the corners and stay upright for the first cyclocross win of the year.

Congrats Ernesto. We should have come to the race to cheer you on! The weather was terrific on Saturday and you won! It would have been a great day! Will catch one of them soon!

sportbrente - "fly" was replaced by "hella cool", or something like that...
