First race done!

Rode in the Dicklane Velodrome Psychocross on Halloween.

I met my goal. I finished and didn't DFL. 26th of 38 starters. 33 finishers. The course was muddy as could be with 3/4 of a lap on the track surface followed by a long infield section that was deeeeep mud, then a climb out of the track that I don't think anyone was able to ride, pavement section, curb hop into some woods with switchbacks and slick mud, curb down to the pavement and back to the track.

I lined up in the back for the start and took it easy letting anyone who wanted to go fast pass me until I got into a rhythm. The last thing I wanted to do was blow up early. I ended up getting lapped of course, but I did beat a guy dressed up like a sandbag, and Eliot with ET. And I was able to give my five year old son a hi-five every lap which he absolutely loved.

Great time and glad to finally be racing again. Now I just need to get skinny and fit.



The attached image shows my rendition of the course. Close enough to get the idea.
