Saturday I did the regular open race, starting at the back really sucks, I pegged it just to get into the top 20 but paid for it on the 2nd lap as 10 guys went past me. it sucked. I know I have top 10 power as even with a broken fork on the last lap I ended up 13th or so. Not bad. The fork leg separated from the dropout, thinking about the three falls I have in cross this season makes me think maybe this wasn't the 1st time it happened. Bummer, but thanks to the lack of help at Reynolds, I have a shiny new Alpha Q CX20 on the way! The service was unreal, great company!
Sunday on a borrowed bike I went with the 35+ and had a good day. Not real confident on a foreign machine but riding with decent power. Out of sorts and riding. I kept it together and showed a decent result. Great course thanks to the promoters laying out an epic loop. Mark and I had separation after a few laps and then he worked me over w/ 1.5 to go to take the W, I quietly rolled in 2nd.
