1st CX race weekend of the 2009 season

Drove ~2hrs down to Colorado Springs on Saturday morning to hit the Pike Peak Supercross #1.  Chilly but it stayed dry.  The course had a couple of killer run-ups including the one below (that Greg made look easy).

Sunday was a lot more of a technical course at the Velodrome here in Boulder.  A couple of fast straights right into tight switchbacks, railroad crossings, and a gnarly little mud crossing/run-up.  They even ran us inside and through an obstacle course at the indoor track wich was cool.  I think the twisty and technical courses suit me better.  I hung on for 13th which wasn’t too bad given a fast Boulder 35+/4 field of about 60.  Super-fun first weekend of racing for the season.
