There's a first time for everything. Like posting to the team blog. This is my eleventh season racing 'cross always on a Soulcraft. The first official race of my season was today at Fort Ord, Monterey. CCCX always puts on stellar events and this one didn't disappoint. The course was fast and smooth with plenty of red walls of poison oak to keep you on track. Last year I started racing A's 35 plus and although I try to not get last today it couldn't be helped after a crash and a bike change. At least I didn't get lapped. Well, off to take that painful first shower ;o).
