ohio state cross race
damn thy dropped chain - 3 races, 3 dropped chains. it's enough to drive me nutty.
call up was non-existant - my first place call up left me in the second row. though, i did have a good start and was 3rd going into the first corner.
first crash came early in the race, near the finish on a short cement section - complete washout on my right side. nice.
next lap, my chain drops in the exact same section.
next lap, as i am now offically in a panic, i stand up a little early coming out of a corner with sandy tires - as soon as they hit the short section of cement right after, i went flying.
levers turned and with me seeing stars, i nearly pulled out right there as the main group was pretty much gone - in it, shawn and paul were flying.
i finish up 12th on the day, a very disappointing finish compared to last year - paul was 4th, shawn in 5th.
next up - possible trip out east to my roots in PA and a few of the MAC cup events.
must get uci points and the days are dwindling down to nationals.
and, i need a new car - mini cooper s or pontiac vibe.... hmm... think i already got the answer in my head, but i don't know how to drive shift... damn!
any takers on a moots ybb 26'er trade up for a mini cooper?
