Racing Cat Three
About 20 minutes into the race someone a few guys in front of me hit a small pot hole and got turned taking out everyone around him. I was directly behind the pile up and locked up my brakes sliding sideways before barely missing someones wheel that protruded from the pile up. I released my brakes snapping back into a sprint to catch the group. I was the last one to latch back on as they went up the hill.
Neena came out to watch and it was a lot of fun having her there to cheer me on. I was able to mix it up and pull at the front for a bit. My head wasn't in it to place so when it came time for the final sprint I kind of just let it go. I went for it a little too early and burned out up the hill. I forgot how much I love bike racing and I want to get back in shape to really be able to have some fun.
