    I have not yet, because I'm not sure if I should race Saturday morning or Sunday morning in the newbie race. Am open to advice on this decision.

    I am woefully unprepared to do this, for two reasons:

    1) I do not have a bike
    2) I am woefully unprepared
    Race Sunday, since I will most likely not be there on Saturday. I have a bike you can borrow.

    Oh. And by the way.... #crossisHERE

    I raced this past weekend at a UCI race in Roanoke. It was stupid hot, and I am ridiculously unprepared for cross.

    BUT... I did end up beating someone in both races on Sunday that beat me in the VA State Champs Cat 3 race last year. And then I melted because it was 100F outside.

    Thanks! Still not certain which day, since sjclaeys is racing Saturday and we can humiliate ourselves together rather than separately.
    Hopefully I will have procured a bike in advance, but if that goes awry, I may take you up on your loaner offer. Last time your bike was not too heavy to pull around behind me as I ran around the course.

    I most assuredly appreciate the cheering and moral support you will offer should I ride on Sunday, which tips the scale in that direction. But will you actually already be there by then or still in bed?

    The nice thing is that going early you get to heckle everyone. And that goes doubly for both days.

    Not only cheering and moral support, but BEER!

    And yes, we will be there before the first race. DCCX is an ALL day party.

    I finally got my act together and registered for Hyattsville CX this Sunday. Who else is racing (or coming out to watch me make a fool of myself)?

    Disclaimer: noob race is at 8:15am

    I'll be there at 8:15 (somewhere). We can then heckle Bob Cannon and ask if he is ok when he races at 9:00.
