Cross Nationals

Guess those socks are a write-off!
This past weekend I was in Vancouver and made the trip out to watch the Cyclocross National Championships in S. Surrey. It was a nasty rainy Novemeber day - but for 'cross racing I guess you could say the conditions were 'perfect'! Coffee in hand, looking out the window from the warm and dry of my kitchen lead to a delay in my departure and I only made it out to watch the elites and U23's race. But after just over a couple of hours out in the driving rain I was suitably wet and cold. I had my camera with me, but it was not a day to learn and play with any settings. I just pushed the shutter button and hoped for the best. I had fun regardless of the soaking, and it was great also getting to catch up with quite a few familiar faces.

The course looked like an excellent test of cross skills and no big surprise that in the end a couple of mountain bikers slipped and slid their way to take both the elite titles.
