Today was the 5th leg of the Stevens Cyclocross Cup. The course was a change-up from the last two years with more single-track and just as much sand. All in all the new single-track and punchy inclines brought a new perspective to the race.
With a proper Indian Summer in late October 🎃, it was the kind of day that brought out more people with my age category (50+) being having the most with 45 registered to race. I had a good start and was top five in the first lap but slowly dropped back and ended up in 9th.
Today’s race also coincided with my birthday 🥳.
One of my gifts was having Franziska and Niilo watch me race as they hadn’t seen me race up until today. Sebastian also made a homemade CX marble cake in the Kandie Gang colors which was the perfect end to a beautiful day 🎂.
