ed sander cyclocross in buckeystown today... i hadn't planned on racing, but then my brother was down for the weekend and since he was racing i figured i'd go along, shoot some photos, and since i'm going to be there, do the 3/4 (formerly B) race.
i had a couple strikes against me going in. first off, my legs were surprisingly tired from spending the previous afternoon running around in the woods shooting my friends (paintball) and secondly, my tri-cross was out of commision since and i was stuck with my singlespeed spot cross bike. it's a great bike for tooling around silver spring, but it's way undergeared as a race bike. i lined up right a the back and just couldn't spin fast enough on the flats (and there are a lot of them on the ed sander course).
got pulled with one lap to go, but the results list me as a dnf... wtf? dnf, that implies i dropped out or couldn't finish. being -1 i don't mind, but dnf is a little insulting, especially since i hadn't been lapped yet. come on guys, first the results cf at charm city, and now listing pulled riders as dnfs?
