Starcrossed and Rad Racing GP-first UCI action of the season.

Tonkin and I on our way to NOT getting in the top ten.

I did a decent ride at Starcrossed. I faded pretty hard with 4 to go. Shannon and someone else got me with 2 to go and that was it for the top ten.

11th place. Again.

With my guts in knots and my back and ribs still pretty crampy, I started the Rad Racing GP this Sunday afternoon and went backwards from the start. I could barely walk the 2nd time up the run up. I was having a hard time breathing and decided to pull the plug.

It is September and I’d rather let my ribs heal up than aggravate it more than needed.

Shannon and Solomon rode their asses off both days. They are killing it. It is going to be a good cx season.

Off to Wisconsin this coming weekend!

Big thanks to the race promoter’s this weekend. The season opener races are always a blast.

  1. Um, 11th is pretty good in a wicked strong field. But, if it makes you feel any better, I finished 10th in, like, 7 in a row last season, so I can appreciate your frustration. Nice job this weekend. Looking forward to seeing how Wisconsin goes (is that Jonathan Page’s race?).

  2. My wife and I cheered you on a bit at Starcrossed. We’ve adopted you as “our” resident cyclocross star. Unfortunately it’s currently an unpaid position.

    Also took some pics of you at the Rad Racing GP. I need a better camera if you get any faster.

    Thanks for keeping the blog current!

  3. Nice race on Saturday. A couple more weeks and you’ll keep your strong starting position. I’d say the star of the weekend besides the usual suspects is Russell!
