Cross is awesome! I did my fourth race this weekend and had a blast. This was the fourth race of the Seattle Cyclocross Series at Sprinker Recreation Center in Tacoma, WA. Thanks to my dad I was able to record this race with my new Contour camera (video above).
This course was a lot of fun. Mostly flat and fast with a few short hills and run-ups. I had my best start of the season and was within the top 15 for the first lap and a half. As you can see at the end of the video, I failed miserably at dismounting on the double barricade on the second lap smacking right into it. Subsequently, my chain was dropped and so was I. I ended up finishing 23rd. Either way, I had a lot of fun doing it. Looking forward to the next race of the series.
