I did my first CX race of the year today -- Pain on the Peak at Bald Peak, Oregon.

I got there early and did a leisurely pre-ride before the first race started. I think that may have been my fastest lap of the day.

None of these people are me. I took these while waiting for my category to start.

I think this picture captures the essence of the day -- straw and dejection. And, oh yeah, this guy isn't actually that tan. He's covered in dirt.



The course was about 80 percent covered with matted straw. That was kind of interesting. What kind of tire works best on straw? Whatever it is, I don't it is what I was using. I think the guy on the right here needs to tighten his helmet.



The picture doesn't do the incline of this turn justice. My front wheel came off the ground nearly every time through here.



You can kind of see how this one worked. The slick straw made this nasty. I saw more than a few guys chewing the hay.



This turn looked like it was going to be tough, but it actually ended up being pretty easy if you stayed close in.



Here's the course dipping into the woods. I wish I had some pictures from in there. That was my favorite part of the race.



This was my least favorite part (to put it mildly), on the other side of the woods. Again, it's hard to get a good picture of a hill, but this guy isn't actually leaning over very much.



When you got to the top of the climb, this was your reward:



They say it was dustier last year at this site.

If I had been able to breath, it would have been quite a scenic ride.

From yesterday's race. Single speed is tough.

My best move of the day: Used telekinesis to make that guy's chain come off, and then I went right on by!

Katie Compton won both days:



Jonathon Page rolled one or more tires BOTH days
