Well, I finally did it. I lost my cyclocross virginity! It was fantastic! :)

Max: 21.9
Avs: 11.2
Dist: 8.48
Time: 41:29
Place: 8
Field Size: 8

I did the C race, 30 minutes. I went to the cross clinic they had before our race, it was done very well. They showed us how to mount and dismount for the barriers. This was the first cross race I have done, it was real fun. I did not really push that hard, not being too sure about the doing this kind of race. By the time I finished the bike sure seemed to be gaining weight over these barriers. I started with my camelbak, but ran out about 3/4 the way through the race, after I ran out I ditched it. The weather was perfect.
