So I stayed up all night in order to get a good call-up for the B race and single speed race here in Bend, OR. But they decided to pull #’s randomly for start order instead of go by time of registration. What the hell? There were 165 racers. My # was one of the last, so I started around 150. My race was over before it even started. The gun went off and I sat helplessly as I had to wait for everyone else to get going. The leaders were gone before I even went across the start finish line. I probably passed 100+ guys, but there was no way I was going to reach the front.
The conditions were brutal. The snow turned to ice and people were going down everywhere. I think I crashed 5 times, one time I thought for sure my bike and body was busted. My hip is bruised and scraped and my neck feels like I got body slammed.
Oh well… tomorrow is another day.
