saturday was very cold with a couple of flurries as we started... a bad start and bobble in the sandpit put me way back in a big field... rode into the top 10 by the end of the first lap and finished 4th. snow picked up all day and ended up in near whiteout conditions for the later races.

sunday was warm and sunny but with a slick muddy course early in the day. the course was slightly longer and with a better start i was sitting in 2nd at the end of the first lap behind saturday's winner. my race ended 2 1/2 laps into the race when, while i was riding in 4th place, the clamp on my seatpost which had been loosening for a while finally gave up and i lost my saddle on one of the run-ups.
