I had never been to a cyclocross race before. Our friend Andy was having his last race of the season and invited us out to come watch and enjoy the party. So we did just that!

We weren’t disappointed! Riders do laps around a set race course with lots of turns and mud and even obstacles where they have to pick up their bikes and run. The race was a muddy, bloody pleasure to watch. Andy on his single-speed was giving it his all for 45-minutes. It was a blast heckling and cheering him on.

My friend Larissa was also riding in the women’s race and so I had a chance to egg her on as well!

We finished off the day with local beer and more chaotic races. Looking forward to next season…maybe I’ll jump into a race 🙂
