Started this blog with “What a weekend” only to realize my half finished W&M blog started the same way. Clearly I need some new adjectives. That being said it was great to be racing on the single track again.
Andrew, Bryce, Steven and I rolled out of Charlottesville Saturday afternoon headed toward the Southern Virginia Shootout in Danville for the Virginia State Champs. Yes you heard that right, because having your first race of the year be your National’s qualifier makes a ton of sense! Anyway, that’s for another day and another time. We got there to find plenty of snow still on the ground from the storm a couple days before. The fact that it was 65 and sunny meant the trails were a mess. We headed out for our pre-ride but it only lasted about 2 miles before we decided that was enough. The trail was a mess and we were ruining it. Plus the standing water that sat on most of the trail was wicked cold.
W&M (February 22nd)
What a weekend! It’s great to be hanging and racing with the UVa and ACCC crew again. It didn’t hurt that it was 65 and sunny in Williamsburg either. I had two races lined up for the day, the Cat 4 open race and then the collegiate B race almost directly after that. I was hoping I could snag some upgrade points to move toward A racing.
