Roadie-friendly course yields win
Psycowpath #1 Tranquility was a short course and with my first lap being 22 min and subsequent laps being 20 min ea. The expert women did 4 laps instead of 5 because one gal wanted to do that and Roxy and I agreed because it was awfully cold and windy and a large portion of the course was out in the open. There were a few wrecks, but none of them were mine. I had one crossing over these concrete things that was sloppy enough to prompt the guy behind me (Nate Woodman) to say something like "I'd straighten that up" or something like that. I agreed and subsequent crossings were right down the middle and went smoothly. I also have to learn to turn my shocks on and off. I spent a lot of energy on the uphill that could have been better used had I gone rigid for the climbs. I'm seriously considering a little note on my bars to remind me. :)
Thanks to Christine for the pic. Check out her blog for more info about the race and the course.
