Holy crap that race was huge. The race was fun and I was lucky enough to be in the middle of the start group. The whistle went off and away we went. It was a fast and crowded field (80-90 people). I took the 1st lap with the group and moved up slowly just trying to get my bearings on this course. Once we got into the 2nd lap I started my attacks and moving up. It was hard to move up. The fast path was really skinny and the rest of the lanes were really rough and hard to gain speed. So I choose my places of moving carefully and went all out on each one. I got into a rhythm and started plucking off the people in front one by one. We were getting close to the last lap and I was around 6-8th place. I was about to move up again when a large group came up on me. I tucked onto their wheels and stayed with them in hopes of finding a place to get back in front. That place never came. We crossed the finish line and the race was over. I ended up 12th (which for me I was not too unhappy about). It was fun and I am hoping to get back their in December for a great US Grand Pri Cross Race.
