Cyclo-Cross Moulins (FRA), 1.11.12

A littl' rain & some mud, a nice lap, could've been my day.

The weather had been quite stormy and cold, but nothing too bad. Except a small part (some short turns around a group of trees, which everyone could've done without), I actually LIKED the lap. Just before the start, it started raining. Talking of start, mine was okay but I didn't manage to have the guys respect me, which resulted in losing a lot of places and having a bunch of technically rather, let's say, incompetent guys in front of me (who slowed me down even more). The other girl was more at ease and had her personal "garde rapprochée" in the beginning. During the first 3 laps, I managed to reduce the backlog I had but after some minor errors and problems with my bike, I had to resign myself to the second place. I'm a bit disappointed with the result, knowing that I could've done better than what I did. But in the end, I'm satisfied anyway because after 2 bad races, I finally enjoyed myself on a bike again.
