Pre-race routine:

Registered, rode back 1/2 mile to truck to get race gear. Road the side streets to warm-up, then watched the 40+, rode the course prior to race.
Bike
  • 50m
  • 9 miles
  • 10.80 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

Since it was my first race, I knew it would be a learning experience. I might have tried the beginner level before moving into the Master's level. Need to figure out how to keep mud off of front tire.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Stopped mid-race due to overheating. Removed skullcap, helped cool off, but lost time. Not used to not hydrating/eating during the race....heavy breathing was more a concern than fatigue.

Event comments:

Solid race.
