I registered today for my first CX race – the Fort Ritchie Cyclocross Challenge. I purchased my USA cycling license and registered into the Cat 5 race. There is a 2nd Cat 5 race at the event, but we have a commitment later in the day that will keep me from that, so it’ll be the absolute beginner race at 8.15, only, for me.
If you are wondering why I would purchase a full racing license instead of a one-day license – it’s the commitment factor. I felt that if I committed more deeply, I’d be less likely to make excuses for my agoraphobia to kick in and skip these races.
So… here we go.
