Yep, confirmed. XC racing is still hard! Got to love Fort Collins, when in August they have a 3 week 3 race series out at Lory State Park. Good training for sure! The race this week fits nicely into the work and riding schedule for the week. So, I threw down my $10 and bled out my eyes for 1 hour. My race plan? Ride hard. Attach the opening climb...by my standards....and see what happens. Well I got the hole shot....and led the group up the climb. But, of course, I pooped out and was left chasing for the next 45 minutes. I had the Epic Cam HD on the handlebars for the duration. Here is the 1 hour race cut down to a quick 5 minutes.
