Another Colossal day

If all mornings would start with Biscuits and gravy, I would be a very happy man. Probably a very overweight man too. Yesterday I got an inside tip that Colossal was serving B&G this weekend, so Joe and I planned to meet for an early breakfast. Little did I know that Frank and Joe were going to ambush me at breakfast and talk me into racing after breakfast.

Sure enough I was easily persuaded and 20 minutes after eating I was on the road heading to the cross race in Blaine. With temps in the 30's, and dropping, it was a perfect day for a cross race.

We arrived in time for Joe and Frank to race and also gave support to other QBP'ers who raced the C's. I raced in the B's and had an average finish for myself, coming in 9th. Starting in the back of the pack is less than ideal, but I made a lot of ground on the first lap. From lap 2 and on I pretty much rode by myself, doing all I could to bridge the gap up to the next rider ahead of me. I didn't have any luck.

The race was a lot of fun. The course was challenging, their were a good number of spectators, and racing in the cold weather really made me feel like I accomplished something today.

Oh, and the Biscuits and Gravy, they stuck with me all morning, even though I had to hold them down for awhile about half way through the race. If I had to do it all over again, I would still have ate the B&G.
