So this is how I was supposed to express my frustrations about Saturday's race: "our team’s fitness/tactics are still coming around." Thanks, .n. Tact was not my major in college, not even one I could seriously consider.
And while a few folks have commented on the frequency of crashes in women's races (and I didn't even mention the one in my race on Sunday), at least we have so far managed to escape shenanigans (that's my big post-St. Patrick's Day word for you) like this cat 1 observation: "one of the HB guys was getting mad at one of the Axley boys cause they were disrupting HB's chase effort....I saw HB grab onto Axley's jersey, force him to the left and then he stopped pedaling so that Axley was in effect pushing him up the hill." That would go off the charts for race entertainment value.
Maybe henceforth I should post my weekend observations on Tuesdays, after dust/mud has settled, so I avoid putting my foot in my mouth and have some comparative basis for assessing the thrills (or lack thereof) in my races.
