Lembi Park in Folsom was the sight for saturdays cyclocross event. It had rained a little so the grass at this park was a slippery in the off camber sections. The sand pit was ever changing and got deeper as the day went on. Rand Miller of Sterling Sports Group had recently blogged about how he wants to beat me and I’m not about to let that happen.
Unfortunately I kicked my rear brake mounting my bike after a barrier on the second lap and disengaged my straddle cable so I had no rear brake. Not wanting to stop and fix it and have to chase back. I decided to get to the front and control the race and be smooth. After loosing Miller to the sand pit I ended up with two Mash SF guys in tow. All I had to do was ramp up the pace and be the first out of the last barriers. Simple right?
Here is a fun video of the treacherous sand pit:
