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

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!

Otto showing me some support after flatting out.

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!
