And the cries of Sandbagger rang out from near and far

Short version for now until pictures and results are posted and then I can create the in-depth linktastic report. For now let's just jump to the end of the event (for me):


Guy behind me: ... like this guy in the 30's... I mean c'mon, he should be in Sport.
Me (in my head): Whatever buddy... you'll get your wish soon enough.

Stunning 7 minute victory today proving yet again that in lower category mountain biking, fitness CAN beat skill. Now where's that upgrade process so I can start getting my arse handed to me?

login to usa cycling and apply for an upgrade. For beginner -> sport the criteria is "I wanna race sport." Or as brad mentioned, you can generally ride sport with a beginner license if you ask nicely.

Filled it out last night. Great, now I'm only like 5 years and 100pounds worth of skill away from racing against Colin ;) Hmmm, now I have to pick a first race to get smoked in.
