OBRA cyclo cross Ninkrossi Cross-Word

Rassumussen Rides Again!

Several weeks ago, “Ninkrossi” in Washougal WA marked my first race in over three years. Normally, finishing in the middle of a Cat C cyclocross race would not rank noteworthy to me. However given how time constraints with work and health issues have kept me on the sidelines for too long, just doing a race felt like a victory! I’ve never done much ‘cross anyway, so I really have no standards in my head that I need to live up to. Right now I’m just enjoying the little bit of training I’m doing and looking forward to the next event.

That opportunity came last Saturday. A Perfect Day–nice weather, a fun course, my supportive wife and my form returning made for a great day of cross at the “Crossword Challenge” in Canby, Oregon! It felt great to be competitive again. I rode the entire race within the top 5-10 riders and wound up in 6th place in a field of about 30.
