First Race!

Oh yes! Just got back from my first race. It's the Prairie City Race Series, which takes places in and around an OHV park. Takes place every Wed, and every week the course changes and gets harder. It's rolling and very XC status'ish. The Nomad was a tank! But none the less I had a blast. I raced Beginner 17-22, 2 laps, each lap 3.4 miles. I don't ride much XC, so this was different, but it was fun. Not sure how I placed, should know in a couple days, and hopefully there will be some pics in a few days also!

wOOt

Good job! Big, squishy bikes are brutal in XC-ish races aren't they? But fun nonetheless. Looking forward to the picts.
