#CROSSISOVER

I’m really thankful I got the chance to attend the entire span of the US Cyclocross National Championships. I had a blast racing, spectating, heckling, cheering, obnoxiously ringing cowbells, talking to racers, meeting pros, and shooting photos throughout the elongated weekend. Sharing these photos with y’all has been truly joyful. Thanks everyone who was a part of my week in Austin!

And for the few that may still be wondering how I did in my 2 races on the first day, it didn’t go as well as I hoped! In the first race (10-29 non-champ), my chain fell off during the first bottleneck. I was running my bike through the bottleneck, remounted, and found it was off. By the time I got it back on, I think I was dead last, or close to it, as everyone had gone through. I got lapped (and pulled) with 2 laps remaining, and got 55th out of 72, so not bad considering what happened! I definitely failed to hydrate well enough and get electrolytes in between races, as the Industry race started 1.5 hrs after I finished the first race. I was starting to cramp pretty badly in my quads and left calf 2-3 laps in. Lapped and pulled with 1 lap left, and most importantly, didn’t get last (42/46)!
