Racing in Slowmo

Racing in Slowmo with the Elites

What’s it’s like when the fast leaders lap you in a Cross Race? It’s all in slowmo, until you start chasing again. I raced the elite race at Marymoor and was doing OK after blowing the first barrier run up. Chasing and one lap down into the final lap of the fastest race of the season, the rear wheel fell off my bike and like 40 guys passed me. 2 laps down, but finished ahead of a few DNFs. I was a bit disappointed cause I finally had some race legs on the course, but that’s racing and mechanicals happen.

Why did the wheel fall off? We’re talking about it in this post on Facebook.

Thanks to @ktamura for the video too and Crosssports for the motivation to show up and race.
