Sunday I cruised down to Harlow Platts Park in SoBo at 7:00am and nabbed the final spot in the cat4 Boulder Cup Cross Race. It was my first cx race and some might suggest that cruising our favorite hangouts on Pearl the night before on tandems till around 1am might not have been the best preparation. I however think it would've hurt either way, so one might as well not squander a beautiful evening staying home and drinking water. The race hurt like hell but I had the omnipresent support of good friends all over the course to keep me going.
Some pictures from the day:
Chris and Evan were there with the cameras.
