Altoona....

Thanks to Fatty for the pic....


Altoona was good on both days. I had Fatty with me on Saturday, so that required a bit of effort to keep him out of trouble. Lions Park, which was the same venue as the Iowa State CX Championships last year. The course itself was quite similar with just a couple of small changes. Lots of climbing in the soft grass. It was good!

Sunday was cold for our race at the Youth Sports Complex in Altoona and the wind was blowing at a bit over 20mph all day. It did warm up in the afternoon but that wind was just BROOTAL! Very difficult course. I'd say the most physically demanding course so far this year. Whoa!

Anyway, it was all good.

A couple more DFL's to keep the streak alive. WOOHOO!

Ride safe.

Peace out, yo!
