Made the 2 hour pre-pub crawl trip up to Norfolk for Elkhorn valleys first shot at a cross race. Jon and crew did a solid job creating a brutal course. Off the line Nate took the holeshot with Troy and Matt in tow. Randy and I settled in but before half lap the lead three were pulling away. As we reached the more technical last half on lap two I passed Randy back and managed to keep him at about 5-10 seconds for a few laps. After that, we flip flopped and it was my turn to trail him by the same amount. This went on until the final two laps when my legs finally let go. Up front, Matt Farnham powered away around lap 2 or 3 never looking back.
It was good to actually race someone and after 4 races under the belt it feels like the 'cross legs are slowly coming back. The bad news is that daylight savings time hits next weekend which will pretty much kill the Tuesday CX practice. Need to find a park with lights.
