First off, I have to say thanks to Ray for putting on a great event. This was the first year for Ray putting on an indoor cross country race. It can only be described as a success. Twenty one riders showed up to test their skills over a three lap time trail over the loop at Ray's mountain bike park. For me, it gave me a litmus test on a switch from novice to sport. Though, my time wasn't what I wanted it to be, 9:29 (with a dab penalty of 15 seconds) it gave me an idea of where I need to improve.
