Today's result: 25th out of I think 77 finishers. The conditions were more muddy today than they were yesterday. During the pre-ride I crashed twice so I got the crashing out the way early on and didn't crash during the race. I got a poor start because for some reason I struggled to clip in, so I wound up passing people throughout the race (which feels a whole lot better than a good start and then getting passed all the time). At the end of the race I was 2nd wheel in a group of 4, started my sprint a little early and the 3rd place guy came around me at the end. Considering that I used to suck really badly at sprinting, that's a definite improvement for me.
Overall I'm fairly pleased with the result of today's race - my tires are not great in mud and I struggled a little in the corners, but that's life. So far this season I've gotten through 13 cross races, 2 DNFs due to tire problems, led a race briefly before crashing, and had a couple of good finishes (good for me, at least). Every single race result has been better than my result at the same race last year, so I think I'm on an improving trend.
