i was there for like 5 hours in the rain. had enrolled for 5k run (ran last yr too) and was going to run.
damn rain made all schedule effed upó5k runs were supposed to be 7p before crit finals, then it went to the end.
was completely soaked and frozen with running fit on, warming up running became kinda meaningless...
gave up, left just after men's crit.
could have done it anyway, but also had my lady and supporters waiting and they were completely wet soaked too.

the crit finals were fun, tho. worried and feared serious accidents, but they managed it quite well.
bummer the accident in the women's, still way better than the last year one especially considering such heavy rain and wind.

I asked the man how it could be black and pale at the same time. He tried to give me a serious answer.

Thanks, I've been enjoying it, but I need to find more dirt roads like I see posted on BF all the time.
It's a Civia Bryant I set up with a 650b wheelset. The saddle is actually an RHM recover.
