The post race write up is here: https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...3#post15506683

If you've ever wanted to race, go do it. I was the fatest guy at the event, had perhaps the least cool equipment, and had an absolute blast. While I didn't finish dead last I'm still off the pace with work to do. No big deal, it's so much fun.

We had motorcycles leading us, team cars with all the cool stuff, wheel trucks, and a big pack of racers. If the first 5 miles of a road race doesn't get your soul happy you may be dead I had a real spiritual moment going complete with streaming tears of joy up until the big wreck snapped me back to reality.

Great fun, now I'm off to stink up the TT this evening.

Did I mention I'm a bike racer?

Nice work! Any pictures?

I had my rookie racing experience in CX last Fall. Managed to squeeze in 11 races. Several photographers were at every race and always enjoyed seeing the photos they posted.

Racing is a great experience. Can't wait for next season.
