No suspense in this blog, I finished on the podium for the first time in the NCCX series.

Race Report: I did not get a call up and started on the second row, as we sprinted away, I settled into 5th place as we hit the first off camber part and realized first was pulling away and I was faster than the other 3, by the next 3 turns I was in second. I was pushing hard to close the gap and making progress as we started into the woods/single track, but the leader passed some back markers of the field in front us right before the woods and I didn’t so I had to wait till we came out…. back to chasing. Half way through the second lap I was carrying a lot of speed through a greasy/grass off camber ess when my bike just slide away from me and I was on the ground.  I was able to jump up before anyone hit me, but never managed to close on the leader.

It was perfect weather for ‘cross, I warmed up in a long sleeve shirt and wore shorts and a sweatshirt after my race.
