    Submitted by 303cycling on November 8th, 2017

    Let me start by saying that I’m a fairly seasoned racer. I don’t finish races thinking “I’m just lucky to be out here.” I usually finish races thinking “Oh! 6th! Too bad it wasn’t 5th!” What I’m trying to say is that I line up knowing that I will place either in the middle or possibly, on a good day, in the upper 1/3. There is data to back this up. But wow, this past Sunday, I was really shaking my head. If you’re new to cyclocross racing let me share a few things I’ve found to be true:

              In the last few months of racing cyclocross, I’ve realized so many parallels this insane sport has to my own life. As a triathlete for the better of the last 8 years, my life was a lot like my training rides…one big blur after the other in a mad rush to get to the next thing. Was it fun? Absolutely.
