My CX Season finish

Final results were posted for the series. I scored points in 3 of 6 races for a final standing of 20th place overall in the Cat-4 Masters 35+ division (average race field was 95 riders):
#1 - 20th place
#5 - 9th place
#6 - 12th place

Still have a couple more race vids to edit.

Congratulations! But so soon over? Is there another series your team can get in?

The MFG (Made For Grass) CX Series (non-UCI) ran from September to November and was interlaced with the Seattle CX Series (UCI points) so people could race both on alternating weekends. The SCX runs for another week, IIRC. Then there's a couple more one-off races here and there:

Many riders are in SF this weekend for the SSCXWC (single speed CX world championships).
The WA State CX Championships are on Dec 4th about an hour north of Seattle, so we're almost guaranteed some snow for that one.
There's a winter race called Jingle Cross, up in Bellingham or Ferndale or someplace up close to the Canadian border in January. There's so going to be snow for that one!
But I think the actual series races are over right around the end of this month. 3 - 4 months of the race season is about enough before you need back off for a while. At least it is for me.
