This is my first year racing Cat2 in the Arizona State/MBAA series. I dabbled a little bit last year racing in the SS open class and never got near the podium. This year I built up a new bike and put in some hours.
The first race out I got a 3rd in the Cat2 35-49 class. Then I got bit by a dog while out riding and missed a week of riding before the second race. Between the 9 stitches,antibiotics and tetinus shot I had a hard time riding with very much intensity. I still managed a 5th at the second round but was back with guys that I easily beat at round one. Now the week before the third round I have a 101* fever,sore throat and bad cough. My kids and wife are all sick also so I will be skipping the race tomorrow. It is also 3.5 hours from my house so saving the gas money will more then make up for the entry fee I paid.
Rant over! I guess the life of an amateur MTB racer sucks sometimes.
