The racing has begun for our Naked Dairylanders. Here is Amanda 1.0 account of the 3/4 race.
If you want to go to an out-of-state race, first rule is to not go with me if you want to have a good time. Both out-of-state races had a similar day 1- torrential downpours, lightening and tornado warnings. Pre-riding in the rain was chilly and wet. Realizing that your soggy chamois is no longer comfortable on “Chafin Road” while warming up should have sealed the deal of not participating in this race but we drove 1,200 miles and there was no turning back. We roll up for staging with ten minutes until the beginning of the race, we are all warmed up and ready to start, then over the loud speaker the voice exclaims that, “Race is delayed. Everyone take cover.” We return to the car to stay protected from the rain, to eat chocolate and to cool down.
