I've always wondered what nowhere looked like. Now I know. This being my first race at Watkins, I was told this was an improved course from last time. The course had 2 long uphills, and one high-speed, downhill corner on very loose gravel (making for the only real technical section of the course.) The details are in the pictures.
The middle of nowhere:
The massive Senior Men 3 Field (15 started only 12 finished)
I got off to a good start jumping into 4th place, which I held for 1 lap.
Still in 4th, just before crashing on a non-technical turn. (drove too hard into the corner trying to capture 3rd--oops!) After crashing, my chain proceeded to divorce my chain ring and instead give my crank-arms some love--twice.
