Not only my first #cx race in Europe but my first ever!
Category: Journal

I never had a chance to compete in any local GA races in the past. And also before my @hillclarke painted @611bicycleco #nahbs bike I didn’t have a #cyclocross bike. Then today I didn’t have the proper tires! ; ) Despite being a rookie and sporting relatively slick treads, I managed to keep passing people and navigate the mud without eating it but certainly got smoked by some heavy hitters! Thank you for the photos @drstaceyrose!

Some THICK mud!

My number one supporter hauling race gear, kids, coffee and more into brutal crosswinds. Tough as nails! She refused to let me pilot the bakfiets!
