Cyclocross Rigaud

I've come to the conclusion that I like Cyclocross Riding. Clyclocross racing on the other hand: OMFG! Fun times at Rigaud.

DFL again. 2 for 2 in that department, but at least I finished! 57:12, 1 Lap down. 5 laps total I think... maybe 4, I don't know, it was all a blur.

Yes, there was sausage (weiners) and even beer - but no "handups" :-(
Le parcours - tricky, very tricky, very very tricky.

Team TurboCrank, before the race, a little muddy from a few practice loops at "easy" pace.

Okay, starting to feel it.
Dag nabbit - stairs at the bottom of a hill.
Looks easy in this picture.
Dag nabbit, stairs again.

My best Jens Voigt imitation.
Almost there.
