Eagle Island Cyclocross Race #2

OK, so I forgot to snap a phone picture while I was actually at the race. But here's a shot of my cassette after I cleaned a whole pile of debris out of it. The race didn't go well from the start since I managed to fall off the bike a couple times in the first 2 laps and couldn't catch back up with the leaders... but then the kicker was a weed that completely engulfed my gears. It was wrapped all around the cassette cogs, from top to bottom, which only allowed one working gear. I had to stop mid race and with the help of a friend de-weed it. Soooo... long story short I placed 12th and blame the weeds! But being sick didn't help anything either.

I hope that's enough excuses, because I can't think of any more. :)
