Dusty-field should be the new name for Wakefield. After a relatively dry and VERY dusty 2 weeks wakefield's trails are ALL very dustry especially the ones in the open. Powerlines was super dusty I kept coughing from all the crap. Can't imagine how bad it was during the race.
This week I did another race lap to start off with after a quick spin around the lower fields/courts. Somehow turned a 19:58 lap which is pretty damn good in my books. Way faster than last week and felt like I still could have been even a bit faster, wasn't pushing it in some area's at all.
The main ride went well other than finding out the gentleman who crashed horribly off the infamous Tree-Zilla Log-Over was on my ride. He tried to pull a manual off it apparently and had a bad fall ending up paralyzed for about 2 months after hitting head first. And that was the end of Tree-Zilla. Oh well. He was struggling a bit and seemed unsteady when trying to get out of the saddle and hammer up hills/etc. He bailed at the far end of Accotink to ride out.
On the way back down Danbury Forest I gate it a good hard spin and hit 33.4 MPH. Zoom.
Riding will be limited this weekend between working all weekend and the insane heat today and tomorrow with temps at 100+.
If you are out riding, stay safe, keep hydrated and wear your sunscreen.
