Cross is hard work for a lot of people. Every team on he circuit has a whole clan of workers and groupies. Almost, a Cross Circus, if you will. I’m lucky enough to be on a team where we may not have the largest team of mechanics but we have a big team of riders who are all willing to help one another. Which, is awesome because we’re all better friends because of it, but it makes the days at the races that much longer.
Tom Price and Bill work their tails off from the beginning of the weekend to the end. Plus they both raced and pretty well at that! My body’s still a bit worn down from the weekend myself, and I didn’t work as much as either of the those boys.
I don’t think I’ll be racing for a week or two now. My back is still not 100% from the herniated disc and stress fractures. I was still supposed to be resting last weekend, but I had been training for a week and half and felt great. Not the best test, but I didn’t care. The race was in Fort Collins, and I couldn’t miss it.
