Alterra Race Report

at least I look good before the kill

Events of my lap: (that is pitiful)

Someone fell in front of me and I thought I almost ran her over

My chain completely fell off

Fresh Water bottle hand-up missed the cage, dropped and rolled down hill forever it seemed

aggressive man not calling out pass in single track

near death experience on the downhill when two men try to pass and pin me in the middle just before the single track, thank goodness I have MAD SKILLZ to stay upright

Quitting the race cause I had enough crap on lap one, very STUPID!

Riding with the fast girls for a bit of my race, PRICELESS

The experience in itself is not haha, but I'll admit to haha-ing while reading. It does suck quitting. I hate that feeling.

I'm with Rachael on that one, I giggled as a read, but totally feel your pain too and know what its like when everything falls to pieces in a race. Its a bummer we couldn't have raced together longer! Next time for sure!!

I feel your pain. I remember laying in my truck after quitting that race last year, just crying . . . .it was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Hang in there!
