On Saturday I raced the Sausalito Criterium - 15 or so laps on a short course with seriously steep hills. After a couple laps I was well off the back, and after six laps I got a flat. With no wheels in the pits I was forced to drop out, which was simultaneously a relief and a bummer - I was having a lot of fun despite completely sucking out there.
So - another race, another DNF. But flatting out is way better than crashing out, wouldn't you say?
