So after a VERY long break from short course racing (and racing in general), I decided to give the cyclocross racing a shot today at the first round of the Specialized Cross Melburn series.
Now this year hasn’t exactly been a year that’s been highlighted with a large number of quality rides or extensive commuting.
So needless to say that I suffered.
But you know what, there’s something about cross racing which is just FUN. Having raced short course on both the road and MTB, cross racing seems to bring together the best parts of both.
The dirt, the dust, the jostling for position (before getting spat out the back), the crashes, the spectators.
All the stuff that makes for great racing.
I think I’m feeling the urge to get racing again.
