Snowball Crit #1

I've never been more excited for a Snowball Crit...
Not to say that I have crazy form or anything (that's not the case at all).
I always try to support the VBV crew, which this year was the 10th edition of the Snowball. I will be missing #2 due to a MTB race.
The weather was typical of a lot of cross races i've done this past season so for me the cold, rain, and wind didn't bother me so much. I made sure I was there early, put the tent up, got dressed, put the embrocation on, and hit the trainer. Got to the start line wearing lots of clothes and peeled them off just before the actual start (just like a cx race).
I have been treating this time of year as my off season but I still wanna whoop it up on the road. After an un fulfilled cx season due to injuries and weddings---I feel like I have some angst to take out on the road this spring. So after some good miles on the road, i'm eager to see what I come up with...
It's always good to get the first race under the belt and with no problems. I got to see who is riding well, and who is not. I was one person out there and the attacks were a plenty. I was glad to play agressively and didn't get put in the hurt locker. I missed a move or two, but i'm okay with that. I'm out there to do work, and have fun! Oh, and I got a $10 preme which got me a few post race brews at hometown heroes!
I didn't see a crash all day, which is a great sign...
I would like to thank Mike P, Mike C, Lynn, and Art for breaking down camp and putting my bike on the car all while the wind went wild and the snow was coming at us sideways.
Only the tough kids showed up to race, so there was no drama to speak of...

And thanks to Cindy for bringing me a special homebrew called "4 Dog Ale" made by the Dazzler and Creedance! That shizat was tight!!! The dawg wants more! panting...

    Thanks for coming out. Of course my slight cold developed into a bad cold but I guess it wasn't in the cards for me to get through the entire winter without being sick....

    It was fairly amazing that there were no crashes. When it is sunny and dry, people are all over the place. Good job everyone keeping it upright.
