Today’s NCCX race visited the sand in Pinehurst. This is not the correct line!
My day started good and I was in the lead group as we hit the sand the first time, the group split and 4, 5 & 6 started our battle on lap two, I took a bad line and fell to 6th before…
my rear wheel came out of the drop outs on one of the sand pits and took me a minute to figure out what happened and reset the wheel.
I fell to 8th and chased hard to make contact with the 2nd group, I finally closed within a couple bike lengths but had popped and quickly got dropped.
no body behind me was gaining and I couldn’t make contact, so I finished 8th. I always like racing here, it is so different and even with a tough day, it’s still better than work! (Thanks Clay for the pictures)
