I just DNF'd the first CX race of the season here due to a damnable pinch flat. I wish i had a spare set of wheels, but barring some ultra-super-bargain score that won't be happening anytime soon.
The thing that really irks me is that i'm in the "C"s (What it that now? Cat. 4?) and really just want to race. If i can even get ONE MORE lap out of my entry fee, i want it.
What's to be done? Anyone know of some obscure rule forbidding me leaving a spare tube, tire levers and a floor pump in the pits instead of spare wheels?
What do you guys do?
