Lake Geneva Cross '14




I raced cross this weekend.  It went pretty well, I took 8th of 74 riders in Cat 4, which earns 0 upgrade points.  After the race we ate lunch and watched the Cat 1's, then I raced the single speed class on my mountain bike.  I was 30 seconds a lap faster on my mountain bike than on my cross bike and that was good enough for a win.

I have never won a bicycle race so I was pretty pumped about that.  About 3/4's of the way through the last lap, a bee flew in under my glasses. It stung me just below my eye, and I must have looked like a crazy person punching myself in the face to get it out.  Luckily I was far enough out front that it didn't matter and I finished it out.
