Cross Catch Up

We are in the swing of cross season, and i've been too busy to write up any race reports.

Here is a summary of what has happened:

Hermann CX. I came into the season still working to develop my high end. This showed as I was not able to go deep in this race, and nearly blew up just trying to ride with the leaders

Boss Cross 2. I was travelling the week before and came back to jump in this race. It would have been nice to be a little more prepared as it was a good race up front. I missed out by botching the sand on the first lap and ended up having to play catch up. Again, the legs just weren't there

 360 Cup. Definitely rode better, definitely had a crappy start both days. Not sure where my start legs went, but they have not been doing me well. Fortunately, I was able to do negative splits for the first 6 laps on both days and get 2nd.

Cross Out Cancer. I finally had a good start and moved into the lead of the race only to immediately roll my rear tire and crash hard on the first lap to give everyone a minute on me. Then I rolled to the pit and got my Crux, then I got after it. Caught the leaders with only a little bit left to race and came out 2nd. The legs are coming back!
