Before the race: "Well, I forgot the latex gloves to apply the embro. Well, what's the worst that could happen? I'll just wash my hands really well..."

 

After the race, wipes eyes. Seconds later, "OH MY GOD, I'VE NAPALMED MY EYES! KILL ME, KILL ME!!"

Great article! My only other tip would be to warm up harder (and perhaps longer) than might seem advisable. If you can get away with two laps of pre-ride, really hammer the second one. That opening sprint is a lot less shocking to the spirit if it's not the first time that day your heart rate has reached the "OMFG Zone."

Indeed, it was a crazy awesome day. The wife and I celebrated our first several anniversaries there, and the race Sunday was a bit of a birthday celebration. Edgefield is a perfect place for a cross race, but I doubt it can handle too many more racers than we saw out there.

Loved the course. Loved. It. We need more crazy hard stuff like that. Of course, if we'd had a wetter year this year, a lot of the courses would've been quite a bit more difficult. Still, the run-ups were criz-azy fun.
