My best CX race everda cyclist

Today I had my best cross race ever. And it really didn't have much to do with how I placed. I got third in the B's which was alright with me, but Lance showed up to do the A race. So of course I went straight over after my race and signed up for the A race so I could say that I raced with Lance. About all I managed to do in the A race was stage next to Lance and then DNF about 5 minutes later. He ended up winning the race. It was cool to get to see him and his family out at a local race. I even got my Postal Jersey autographed (I happened to have a brand new jersey that I had been saving for this very purpose - I brought it along because I heard he might be showing up). He was really friendly and didn't mind chitchatting with me for a little while. A real class act. Made my day.

I am really happy for you! You had a great day and I guess you will tell your grandchildren about it ... !
Lance rules for doing things like that - did you take any pictures?
