Good race, though I didn't finish. I pulled myself (somewhat literally) from the track at above distance after taking a big stack. I had crashed before during the race, but without injury, but this one was owie. Riding fast down a straight, uneventful piece of singletrack until... hidden stump in the bushes. I got too close to the edge of the track and clipped my pedal on the stump at about 25km/h. The rest, as they say, was history.
Hard track, but super fun. Appin under race conditions is even gnarlier than Appin while taking a leisurely ride! Still a good day—I just need to work on my hydration patterns and find a way to boost alertness in later stages of long rides. By the time I crashed, I wasn't sore in my legs (in fact, I started second lap much faster than the first!), just making bad decisions in features.
