CCCX#2

I told Daryl I wouldn’t go down early for the B race, he sucked it up and lined up for the A field today. To his credit held it together super well for the whole hour, railing the sandy bits and maintaining composure even after getting derbied by some MASH kid and having to ride in the drops with a loose brake lever. Course was typical Fort Ord, dusty and bumpy with a fair bit of elevation, first lap was pure Grapes of Wrath dust cloud and boy it hurt. First one of the year always gets me, too busy catching up with folks to warm up properly, fortunately my strict training regimen of work, coffee and dehydration had me well prepared and riding well……until two to go when the climbs became Everest like and it was all I could do to not puke on my bars. Good day though, did some very satisfying feet up slides in the sand, and my old sway backed mare of a neglected bike just keeps on ripping. Big up to Mr. Rogers for riding well for the whole hour, no more B races for you. Cameron
