If you don't win it, go for the Tweety Chair (4th place).
Home court advantage at the Draper ICUP race has never paid off for me. This was the 3rd year in a row that I crashed. This time, it was early in the race (lap 1 of 3). I finished the race with a wicked wobble in my front wheel (gotta love disc brakes).
4th place was not the result I was hoping for but I had a great time seeing my friends both on the course and after the race. (Congrats to Rico for a 2nd place finish in the SS div. He crushed it).
Maybe one day, I'll remember to pack some food for the post race recovery. After waiting around for what seemed like hours for the awards, I treated myself to a cheese filled hot dog from the Chevron. It was the saltiest thing I could find. I was so hungry, I would have paid $20 for it.
The races get harder from here on out. Maybe I should dig up that 20t cog for the 2nd half of the year.
