It was a cold, wet one this Sunday out in Belcarra for the West Coast Super D. There was still about 75 riders out for the race despite the inclimate weather. I forgot my booties, and briefly considered it when Phil Deguise (who was checking out the race on behalf of CCN) suggested that I tie plastic bags around my feet. Yes, it was raining that much.
As expected, course was pretty muddy by the time race runs started, but there was still lots of loam to be ridden. The first half was a fun technical descent and I made sure to make lots of big ruts in the corners for Dan Webster to fall into (which must be why I beat him). Then there was about 4 or 5 minutes of climbing, followed by a little more descending through the woods and a short uphill sprint to the finish.
I was the fastest girl of the day, 57 seconds ahead of the next female finisher. My time was 14:41. The fastest time of the day was Chris Johnston at 10:26, which was pretty impressive. Full results can be found here.

Sorry no pictures yet, hopefully a couple to come.
