Cyclocross season is done.

My first complete cyclocross season is in the record books. It's amazing having access to such prime cross conditions in around PDX, and a full calendar of amazing race action to keep you busy from August to late November. At one point I was doing four races a week. I had some pretty tough moments, and a couple injuries that kept me humble, but it was all worth it for the feeling of that one race where I rode away from the pack and stayed away for six laps. I never won a race before, and if I never do again, that'll be just fine with me.

Next year I'm looking forward to having a bit more experience under my belt. You really do learn something new in every single race.

Here's a gallery of iPhone shots I got throughout the season. Next year I'll be taking a film camera with me to the races.
