11/17 Newark, OH: The CX race that wasn't
Uggh. I had a terrible mechanical on my last warm-up lap on the way to the start line of the Newark, OH CX race last Saturday. A trashed rear derailleur, broken derailleur hanger and many broken spokes on the sweetest race wheels I’ve ever ridden … which I should mention were borrowed wheels (so sorry, JB) … this is why I cannot have nice things. There are few things more anti-climactic than getting so worked-up to race and moments before the start then just not starting.
