If I had told myself 6 years ago, "Hey Jenny Oh Hatfield*, in the future, you will be racing bicycles," I would have laughed.
I came, I raced and I played cat-and-mouse on the course with Jenn, Vanessa (my Jortz nemesis) and Laura. In the end I came in 18th overall.
Today we were bestowed with another glorious Sunday in the Bay Area, which meant another fine opportunity to sweat and toil in the afternoon sun had arrived.
Today's race report can be summed up in a few words: cupcakes, heat, stairs, singletrack, beer and suffering.
Yesterday was cycling art night in the city. I checked out Bridget's art opening in the Mission, then headed on down to 111 Minna for this year's ARTCRANK show.
Today was Race #2 of the Bay Area Super Prestige Series at Candlestick Park, and I was amazed I made it out there to race as this morning unfolded like a comedy of errors.
Brian Brooks and Jeremiah Blume organized another rad cyclocross event at 111 Minna tonight.
My CX team vive le tarte + Cykel dominated at the first race of the East Bay Cyclocross Series today! Heath won the men's race, while Bridget won the women's.
I'm sad to say that I'm still pretty awful at riding the single track sections of Tamarancho.
2012 cycling shenanigans!
Since I wanted to stake out new mountain biking territory in the East Bay -- I have a perpetually restless need to ride in areas I haven't ridden before -- TBO and I headed to Briones Regional Park today.
dfL brings its craziness to West Oakland!
