My 50th Cyclocross Race!
I entered the 50th cyclocross race of my "career" last night (and my 15th at Alpenrose Dairy). It feels like a major accomplishment. I know a lot of people have done more races, but I think it is entirely possible that I have finished behind more riders than anyone on the planet. I just went through my results and calculated that in 50 races I have finished behind 3204 racers, not counting my 4 DNFs. I do, however, have 6 top 20 finishes, three of which were top 10 (yes, some of the races in Oregon do have small turn outs).
In other news, 550 racers turned out for the race last night -- 550 racers on a Wednesday night! Is that crazy or what?
