Another sleepless night listening to down poring rain off and on all night. by the start of the race it had stopped raining but fog still hung in the air . the start went well up a big road climb then into a fast single track I sat in about 10th right where I wanted to be. Then the tire problems started I got a flat stopped and hit with a quick co2 had to sprint through about 15 riders then got to were I was chasing the front group again got back to about 8th then again with the tire had to use my 2nd co2 from then on I had to use the pump at every aid station. With all the problems I felt pretty good and finished 10th not a great first race but it feels good to get the first one out of the way.
