Oh man! I had the legs, I had the momentum!
And it ended face down in the mud.
I am heartbroken. Completely shattered that it ended like that. I hit the deck hard. (oh what I would not give to have the Cross Crusade races finish with a 200meter road section, like every other cyclocross race in the world!)
I went through a world of emotions last night and ended up bawling in the car after eating dinner with Pete at the Blossoming Lotus. I was feeling pretty shafted.
I stole this photo from PDXCross as it says it all. Now go to their website and buy some pictures.
Bumping is racing, I believe that.
