    Nice video.

    Seeing how fast everyone else was going through the sand made me feel really slow. I was barely maintaining enough speed to stay upright. I think I'm going to tell myself that this footage must have been shot later in the day when the rain made the sand firmer. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    Andy, all joking aside, you actually have a point there. The earlier groups definitely had a rougher go of it through the sand...I saw way more people getting stuck and going down in the early groups, than in the later groups. In fact, the rakers were trying to fluff it up more in the afternoon, but but then it was more compacted, and riders were indeed having a better go of it!

    Thanks for taking a look!

    That couple races alot. MTB, Road, Cross. You should see their barrier tecnique......King and Queen of tandem racing!
    Cyclocross: Side effects may include but are not limited to; nausea, blurred vision, increased heart rate, and an elevation in blood pressure. Should you experience difficulty sleeping, compulsive headset repacking, frequent derrailuer adjusting, constant checking of tire pressure, or impulse bicycle parts purchasing, register for the next cross race immediately.
