I did the math and probably would have not made the 3rd lap in time, but that's the first time I quit before I saw the checker's. I proved to myself I can do a race without injury so now I am pissed with that finish and will guarantee a better one at the next race. I know it sounds crazy to not be happy with 9th out of 25th, but if I stop expecting more from myself I'll just follow someone on the trail when I'm tired instead of digging deep and doing what needs to be done to get to the front.
10.5 miles in the woods on the bike??? I'd be in trouble...good for you! All the fast guys in our club ride/race mountain bikes, in fact the 38 yo AA guy won the last race overall trophy used to be a pro moutain biker.
