The 4th round of the Utah series was at yet another equestrian arena. A nice day until the start of the last race( mine). Hail and sleet started the race with us and continued off and on through out. It made for some fun and good pictures. I reached the last asphalt climb in first and was caught and passed by 2 titan size riders who have been dominating the series....for now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fULQhTyYAIU

Race # 3 in the UTCX ( Utah cyclocross ) series at the fairgrounds ( horse arena) in Heber Utah. Sunny weather starting in the upper 30s and warming to 70+ degrees. The only adversity came in the way of the notoriuos " Goathead" thorns, which plagued racers young and old, leaving sometimes a trail of tears.

After flatting in the first round of the series it was nice to get a descent cross race without incident. I got what I deserved but was in position to do more. The course was ruff enough for my watch to rub a good raw spot . So now I can't where it, weird. This is the train leaving the station. We started with ten or so, the 8 or so. Crash here, slide out there, then 6, then 5 as the last four shattered with one to go, leaving me in a humble 4th.
