NC Cyclocross #1 Southern Pines, NC

I never thought mountain biking is south Mississippi would have come in handy but it sure did last weekend.
A lot of trails back home are either covered with pine straw, comprised mostly of sand, or both.
The back half of the race course included 50+ft of sand; deep sand.
I watched the cat 4 masters ride through and saw what not to do. 
I flubbed the start, but I think I passed 8 people on the back half.  A few of them around a some sandy turns. dumb luck or skill? 

Sand trap
The rest of the course was flat, wheel sucking grass. Something I need to practice on.
That helmet just looks silly
I was a bit disappointed with the scene. Courtney's first CX race should have been in the midwest. It wasn't a party atmosphere, maybe Boone will be wilder.
23rd out of 33 in my first Cat 3 race; not bad.
