my first xc race of the year. i thought it would be fun to race at hog run again, the last time i rode there was probably back in 2000 when i entered my very first mountain bike race. but this time, most of the race course was on the newer advanced section. there were log obstacles and technical parts with only one that i remember having an alternate route around them. im bummed that the technical stuff is what slowed me down. i gotta practice those cyclocross mounts and dismounts and use those tricks until i get my bouncy bike. that could very well make the difference between first and second place. or maybe it was fate that i placed second for the second time racing at hog run, now i really can’t complain too much about that.
