Friday ~ Foto Friday

A couple years ago somehow I got into mountain bike racing. Like it. Thrilling. Challenging. At this particular race I led the entire race. I outran the chic (in the middle) on the all the straightaways so I pretty much had first place secured. At the finish you had to bike down by a fence for approximately 25 yards, make a quick switchback to the finish. I had first place, so I quit pedaling and coasted to the finish. She caught me at the last second. hmmm. Hard lesson learned. Never stop pedaling. :D


Pony up! Post. Comment. I'll link you up! Have a great weekend!

Ahhh, that must have been frustrating! No shame in 2nd place, though!

That's too bad about getting bumped out of first place. Second is still amazing! I bet you haven't made that mistake since then. :D

Great picture!

Bummer. But #2 is nothing to sneeze at. Nice job!!

And is it just me or is #3 wearing canvas camoflauge cutoffs? Daaamn. I know next to nothing about cycling, but that can NOT be the best clothing option...unless you're really into inner thigh chafe.

Tough lesson indeed. :o)

I found your site through Blyfinns CB race report. Seems like we both had pretty good days. Good luck with that half IM this weekend. Hopefully the weather is a little less wet.
