Yesterday, Cuski and I headed off to Bellingham for Bandit Cross, his first cyclocross race of 2017 (and maybe last of the season). We were quite optimistic about how the day would go; however, we soon learned that life had other plans for us. We left Bellingham with sore muscles, him from racing and me for just being a klutz (slipped on a patch of ice and twisted my ankle). Fortunately, I managed to get some decent shots of the race. It was pretty interesting. They had a Le Mans start, which meant that riders started by running to their bikes that were lying on the ground about 100 feet away. There didn’t seem to be a lot of riders per category… maybe it’s too early in the year, I don’t know 😛 There were a few local boys participating though, which was nice to see. We hope to be back but hopefully next time, with fewer injuries.

I only noticed while editing photos that there were dollar bills hanging from the trees.
