And We Are Underway...

The first race of the day - Junior Women 10-12, 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18 - is underway on a sunny, bone-chilling Friday.

With a wind blowing out of the northeast, it feels colder than the 21 degrees showing on the thermometer.

The youngest competitors in this first race had trouble negotiating the first off-camber, right-hand turn. Many fell off their bikes and had trouble getting their footing on the hardened ground that was slick from frost.

The course is extremely rutty from yesterday's mud-fest. Already, two competitors have had to receive medical treatment after taking hard falls.
