Fred’s race report:
I had a good warm up with my buddy Mat Gordon before the race. We related our stoke and trepidation about the start of the cx season over a shared Thunderbirdbar and then lined up at staging. Jaques Meynes and Eckmann and Scotty Chapin and some other famous guys were there and then a huge squad of Rocklobsters…. so….
I went for it. I tried really hard. And I had lots of fun. I tried not to know that the podium was futile. I crashed right after the start and was last place for a bit - overlapped my front wheel with someone in a turn. But I got to try out my mean, try hard face and gunned it on every straight and uphill that I could. The field had some pretty serious racers and my goal was not to get lapped. And I didn’t get lapped! Oh happy days. 11th place. Just out of top ten.
I didn’t race cccx #2 but I’m headed to #3 and then the BASP starts. Stoked.
