NorcalCx flavor number 5 in SJ

Fun day out with Leah, Brad, and Jon in Cunningham Park in SJ. I was excited to test my bike skills on a very varied course. I pre-rode most of the course, opting out of putting my bike through the foot thick mud. The mud came as a surprise since we are recording the driest calendar year since 1849. Anyway, rode the long deep sand sections and the steep descent to get a feel for the rhythm of the course. I didn’t find that rhythm on the first two laps, making some poor decisions to stay on the bike too long in the sand. I thought that all my running practice was going to be wasted this year but in this race it helped me pull back half a dozen riders. Murphy had us racing for 55 minutes. That helped too. In the end great racing on a well designed course. Now if only the progressive city of SF would lighten up and support bike racing. RIP GGP.
