This was probably the hardest cross race I have done this season. The course was perfectly constructed to reveal all of my weaknesses–bumpy conditions that I can’t sit down for, and nice long, flat straight-aways on the road, with hairpins at the end. Everyone else was pleased to have these road sections to power and pass on, but all I could do was hang on and take a better line through the corner. Got dropped a few times on them. Why do I race road at all??? It does beg the question…
