Blown out: Pikes Peak BMX

Regarding Saturday’s BMX race in Colorado Springs, I was … SO … DANG … EXCITED!!! But alas …

– It was horrifically windy. So windy that trucks were tipping over on I-25. So windy almost nobody showed up. So windy you had to pedal down the start ramp. So windy that even Ross Milan wan’t jumping anything on the first straight. So windy they cancelled the race.

– We were there, so a few of us sessioned the last, wind-aided straight. It went roller, table, roller, roller, camel hump, roller, roller. That left plenty of room for interpretation, and we had a fun 90 minutes or so before we packed up and headed home.

– Goggles would have been a good idea. I’m still digging sand out of my eyes.

– Note to self: Next time I drive 2+ hours to a BMX track, I’ll check the weather report first.

I wonder how the tracks in Longmont and Dacono are looking? …
