First Mountain Bike Race

I decided to enter a cross country race yesterday after just four months of mountain biking. I probably should have waited a bit longer before racing, but I wanted to see how it was ;) We met up with a group that we ride with 2 to 3 times per week. They race in the Downhill event and Mr. B has joined their team to do 4X {four-cross}. 4X is basically a downhill BMX course. The Mr. had his first race yesterday too. 

I was the only rider for my level and age group, so I earned some points by default. Overall it was a great experience and we learned that we need lots more practice to be even remotely competitive LOL. But we had fun and that's what matters!

Here I am, being tempted with a beer at the finish line :)
