Cross and the Fargo
My first cross races of the year are in the books. Yep, it hurt...a lot, but was also a lot of fun. Had a weird mechanical on Saturday. My tire came off the rim after going through a small sandpit. First time that ever happened. Had to run it for a bit to get to the pit to get it fixed. It was an easy fix and I was able to continue the race and go on and finish. Unfortunately, I got lapped by the top three. Bummer.
Sunday was a bit better. Managed not to get lapped by anyone! That's my goal for this year. Not to get lapped. Baby steps. Next year maybe I'll try to crack the top seven.
Got the Fargo built up this weekend too. Thanks to MG and Salsa for the frame and fork. Thanks to Vomitron for the wheel build. The bike turned out pretty nice. It's ready to go just in time for the Big Wheeled Ballyhoo! I'll be leading some gravel rides on Saturday and Sunday. Come on out to Potter's Pasture for a celebration of big wheeled bikes!
