We raced a slightly longer-than-usual race tonight, three laps of Watopia’s Volcano Flat course, for a total of 23 miles. It was a mixed-category race (all categories riding together), which seems to be universally disliked, so I’ll definitely schedule more of these, to increase everyone’s misery quotient, and training effect :-). As is usual in mixed-cat races, the front was super-fast, driven by a large group of A riders, but everyone in our group managed to hang on for at least half of the first lap, before folks started to fall off. Zinj put the “Flat” in the “Volcano Flat” course by actually managing to get a flat in his tubeless tire, not once but twice. He then displayed his NASCAR-worthy pit skills by managing to repair his flats and get back on the bike while still finishing in front of many riders.
