A good race despite the lack of sleep and feeling nauseous. I thought that I would feel terrible during the race but I wasn't. A 3rd row start also helped. My lap position improved as the race went on - 30th, 29th, 28th and finally 27th at the finish. 2:38 behind the winner. My lap rankings also was improving - 30th(lap 1), 27th(lap 2), 24th(lap 3) and 17th(lap 4).
Felt it was a smooth race for me.

A disappointing day. I had a 1st row start and 4th position after the gun. Then got ruined by small mistakes at the technical sections on the course. Finished in 18th position. Last year, I was 9th. Today was sunny, last year was cold and rain. Wish it was like last year's weather. Didn't even finish in the top half of the finishers. Bummer.

Race report

After many days of stormy weather, the course was muddy on the grassy field and very muddy by the tennis courts and bunker mound. I got a 2nd row start which helped a lot. Stayed pretty consistent throughout the races. Lap position were 22nd, 21st, and finally 24th on the last 2 laps.
2:55 behind the winner.
p.s. My rear tire almost gave out during the race - has a sidewall bulge now. Needs to be replaced.

Race report

This is my least favorite course. Treated this as a "training race". But it was still a "super hard effort" to do this. I did improve my riding skill on the 2 long sand sections. But they were very draining. Not much left afterwards for the uphill section. My right thigh was cramping on the last lap. Finished 39th out of 71 racers. My lap placings were 43rd, 40th,39th,38th and finally 39th. Finished 8:11 behind the winner....bummer. But I didn't get lapped.
I went down once during race. Scraped the elbow.

Race report

It was a steady race today. I was mid pack for the start and pretty much kept my position. I went down on 1 technical section/off camber turn and hit my head on a course pole hard (thank God for the helmet). After that I ran that section instead of riding it.
It was a warm day and the course was dry and dusty. The bumpiness of the mid field was not bad.

A few places better than last year. But it should've been higher since the beach course was removed and I had a 2nd row start. I was 19th in the 1st lap, then 24th, then 31st, finally 35th. A little disappointed with my slow decline in placings. Finished 2:50 behind winner.

Race report

Final race of the season. Went down fighting.......literally. Got squeezed/pushed off the course 2x. Able to recover quickly both times but probably lost out on a higher placing than 42nd. My lap times shows I got faster as the race got longer. It also shows my placing got better each lap, 51st on the 1st lap, then 42nd on 4th/final lap.

Til next year.
