The week before today, I was out binging on Netflix and copious amount of tea. Yes, my body took a hit after I put in a bit too ambitious run around the Alster. That said, after a week of couch surfing 🛋️ it was time to test the lungs and line-up for the 8th race in the Stevens Cyclocross Series.
Being that it was RG Wedel’s first cross race, and I hadn’t had the chance to preride before today, I was looking forward to experiencing a completely new cyclocross course. I was also looking to ride with the other 78(!) people that were registered in my age group.
During my pre-ride of the new course, I remembered riding some of the same trails during the RG Wedel e.V. CTF that I rode in January of this year. In the end, the course was fast and friendly with only three obstacles where I had to dismount from my bike and jump over.
Bravo Martin 👏
Onto the Race
Of the 78 men that registered only 30 showed up 🤷. After getting a good start I was able to hold onto third place before being swallowed up by three others, and ultimately, finishing in seventh.
Thankful, and grateful, for all the support along the way 🥳!
