hobby park XC racing. podium kind of. cooper river 10k

any questions??:

someslowguy racing:

zippity do-da:

so i did my first cross country race since may 2008 and had decent results. after getting the whole shot and entering the woods in 3rd or 4th place i just kinda went along, passed a guy that lost it in a corner, and rode on my own to a 3rd place finish.
beginning the sprint to the finish:

this was my best finish since i've started bike racing so i was stoked and waited around for results to get posted and awards only to get a maxxis ust tire and a handshake.

no podium picture, not even a podium!?! i was a bit disappointed by this, but nonetheless its a step toward upgrading to cat1-expert. so its another result for boone velo. i'll try to keep em coming. at least i got in a great race with the boys:


the bike race was march 22nd and i've just been slack about getting a blog post going. this past weekend darcy and i made the trip down to charleson, SC for the cooper river bridge run 10k. it was quite exciting although we forgot to take a camera so i'll be waiting for julie howe to put pictures on facebook. then i'll steal some and put them up here. darcy and i ran together BUT i used a secret method of delaying my chip on my shoe from crossing the line and then finishing with that foot forward to gain a whole second on her. 58:04 and 58:05.
