hope to die
5th at the spin cross your heart and hope to die race this past saturday.
course was pretty standard, but had one hellish of a hellishly long step run up climb that proved to be a killer to the field.
split came fast and i was in a group with gerry and shawn, rear tire started feeling flat so i switched bikes and the gap grew on those two. paul and an inferno rider caught me, so i rolled in for fifth.
kind of disappointing after the race as i realized my back tire was OK - been running lower pressure this year to help with traction and i guess i am not used to the feel.
congrats to fellow speedgoat rider gerry for the win and shawn for rolling in at second place and then having to immediately leave to go back to work.
next up, i head south.
