Colorado Cross Classic/ Boulder Cup

Both days proved to be quite the sloppy slick mud fest that I was hoping for. Here is what went down.
The course dried out a bit for the Elite men and women with the mid afternoon sun, leaving only one or two sections of slick shit.
Ryan Trebon won a race. Yippie...
Katie Compton won a race. Yawn...
I placed mediocre in the 3s. Obvs.

These two races really do prove that Boulder is one of the best areas in the country for cross. These courses were hard, techie but also fun as hell. They left you spent and having the post race hack but with a smile ear to ear. Add the mud and sunny but chilly weather and you got on hell of a weekend of racing, not to mention the level of competition out here. A Junior, whom started 2 minutes behind the 3s and 1 minute behind the single-speeds, caught and beat both fields. I mean what do they feed these kids out here?!

If you want to get a little more peep this or use the Google machine or check just about any cycling website, duh.

As for me, I may just take a little break from racing, T minus 17days!
