Boulder STXC round 2

Good fun was had by all – in the men’s B race, Jason Boardman pulled a top 10 of some kind, though we’re not sure exactly where. Sarah did well in the women’s A race, and finished somewhere in the top 10 as well, despite being knocked over by a slower rider on one of the short but steep climbs on the course.

By the time the men’s A race was ready to start, the air was thick with dust, and the sun was dropping behind the mountains, making for very interesting/low visibility. We had a HUGE field again this week – probably 35 guys, and I had my usual lousy start. Chased hard, but never cracked the top 10. Jung and I sprinted for the finish, with Jung beating me out by 2 feet. But hey, I finished, and didn’t flat, so I’m happy. Still coughing up dust this morning, though.
