This was the first of two races for the day. I figuered that the 35+ race would be the safer of the two. Well, nobody hit the deck but, this wasn’t due to lack of trying. What a sketchfest.

I went into this race kinda rushed and got dropped to mid pack on the first hill. Through out the race I worked with many groups to gain ground and stayed busy to the final climb and placed 37th. Not where I wanted to finish, but finished in 2:08.
