Got CRUSHED at Tamarancho Race
Was signed up for beginner. It was 111 deg out. So they cut the race distances in half. Since there were only a few guys in beginner I decided to race SPORT. BAD IDEA. I got CRUSHED. First lap I kept up ok for a while but then the field just disappeared into the distance !! Not sure what place I finished but it wasn't good ! I think I'll stick to beginner next time. My bike computer even blew up mid race - The screen just fizzled out !!!! Before it died my HR zone was in the mid 190's..... :(
Mid way into the 2nd lap I felt like I was going to barf AND crap at the same time... My stomach was in some serious heat stroke jumble !!
Also all the recent chat about sand baggers and racing sport etc... made me decide to make the switch ! THANKS A$$ Holes !!!!:D :D :D :thumbsup:
Sorry I missed it this year.
I had a total blast last year, and placed third in beginner (although they STILL have not corrected the results and prolly won't!! GRRRR!). The course was a fun. Lots of railing, some techy stuff... fun times.
I have since moved to Sport (but I've only done two races this year, so maybe nobody will notice ;) ). This year I ran SOC in Sport and got crushed. I placed like 75th out of 115 riders, therebouts.
Then again, maybe I'm glad I missed it this year.
