Videographer is the teammate of Charon Smith (Surf City black/blue) who placed 2nd. Tinstman (MRI green) was able to hold on for first. He went on to win the P/1/2 a few races later.

That elbow bump from the kid that weighs maybe 120lbs wet was funny....playing with fire.
This was my first cat 4 race.
This is the full 37 minutes.
This is a 5 minute highlight video.
That would be me at 6:55- the sorry bastard who dropped his chain at the base of the grade. Very disappointing. At least it made for a good 30 minute threshold effort trying to re-attach...
All but closed to traffic? I don't think so. Count the cars.
a couple of notes
1) try using the drops more. from the video it seemed you were in the hoods 100% of the time. you'll save a lot of energy/it's safer to use the drops more
2) at 1:30 (in the highlight video) please please please check your six before moving across the road like. the kelly rider almost slammed into you, that could have been bad.
The CL violations are what get me in the video above. Okay, it was a "closed" course, but if they are telling you CL is enforced, then why not follow it?
pfff they're just old people....
note i'm joking, as someone the other day jumped at me for making that joke, and i just sat there thinking "could they not tell by the giant smile and stupid laugh afterwards that i'm joking? or by the fact that i get beat by the guys who win the masters 1/2/3 race?"
Video below is also from Black Hills 2013, the Cat5, my first race.
The video is unedited so here are some key points you could skip to:
5:32 - Race start
18:30 - I get dropped on the start/finish climb
21:55 / 26:55 - Result of a crash
28:20 - Me being pulled off
29:40 - Last lap
32:55 - Finish 1st place
33:28 - Team mates, in pink, with an awesome 3rd and 6th spot!
