Ironclad Cycling knows how to put on a CX race. This course is unique and challenging in that the climbs and descents on the otherwise flat farmland were built by dump trucks and backhoes. And they are steep. This race happens twice a year usually and it is a completely different ballgame once the rain starts. I was feeling good today and I ended up taking the win - not sure which was tougher, the dusty washboard or the legion of hecklers at the top of the climbs. Big props to my wife Lu for grabbing some really awesome shots.
