The 2013 racing season is off to a heck of a start! I haven't raced in a while, and thought this would be a great time to get back into it. Here's how the last two weeks went down:
1. CU Short Track Mtn bike race at Valmont Bike Park: 38/41
I forgot how much I hate short track. This was a fun race, especially if you like suffering for a short period, which it turns out I do not.
2. Sunshine Hill Climb: 47/60
Sunshine Hill Climb
This was the third time I'd raced this, and I got my best time and place so far. I'm not fooling anyone with hill climbing skills, but this is just a fun race with a bunch of people. Trying to break an hour next year would be awesome, and put me a few more places ahead!
3. Flagstaff Runner Rider Challenge: 4/16 (among riders)
Runner Rider Challenge
This is a race we do in our office, where we all ride up flagstaff. Of the serious riders, I took 4/6. This is pretty much a good reason to heckle one another and skip work for an afternoon, but it's still a 20 min sufferfest.
4. Winter Park season opener: Excel Roofing Hill Climb: 4/10
