Last week was the second race in the Over the Hump Mountain Bike Rac
e series. I didn’t have high expectations for the first race
, but this race I really hoped to be faster (and by faster, I mean faster than Todd who was racing it for the first time, on an old bike, and without his usual endurance). If I ever had a chance to beat him, this was it.
Well, he crushed me by 6 whole minutes.
I have my excuses though: having to wait at a terrible bottleneck on the course, losing my chain coming up the long, steep, hill and taking a terrible, over the handlebars, crash on a sandy downhill turn.
I’m just lucky I finished at all.
