Single track bitch slap!

Time is short and I have a raging headache right now so I'll keep this short. Yesterday I got spanked galore during race number two for MMBA . That course always seems to give me trouble and this year was no different. I felt fine during most of the race but could never get into a groove. How can I describe that course? I know, its sort of like getting kicked in the junk...for 2 straight hours. There are some many granite chunks, large rocks, tight turns etc that it can be painfully hard to get your flow going. Those who figure it out can do well, those who don't (me) simply try to get through. MattyD royally kicked my ass as suspected and I met Tizzom briefly for the first time before the race start. I'm not sure where he finished because he quickly packed up and left after the race but he couldn't have been much worse off than me.

Time to lick my wounds.

HA. Tizzom got a royal fat headache and exited stage left after one lap. My start was OK, but after about 15 mins got a raging headache that essentially killed my ability to focus my eyes!? Combine that with the course and I think I was better off. Not sure what was wrong but I was feeling like shit all afternoon and I slept about 11 hours last night.
good meeting you as briefly as it was!

bummer, hope all is better. I had hoped to hang out and chat after the race but you've got to listen to the body. Next time...

Man that course sounds like a bitch! Hope you're (both) recovering. Next time!
