...from today's Broadview Heights cyclocross race, where racers faced temps in the low 30's, considerable wind, a slight bit of snowfall, and lotsa mud from yesterday's inch-plus of rain:
-There seemed to be more participants in the "A" and "A masters" fields than usual. Nice.
-There seemed to be more participants in the women's field than usual. Nice.
-It may not be warm enough all week to use the hose to clean my bike before next week's race, and I was too lazy to do it today. Not nice.
-There was an ungodly number of grown men congregated together and changing clothes in the heated "one-ie" bathroom at the race site before and after the race. Nice/Not nice, depending on how you roll.
-The firepit, cookies, and brownies by the registration area ruled. Nice.
-This sport is insane.
