    This would have been a good race had it not been for the ice. I thought I was out of danger and pushing speed found out too late there were still a couple of icy corners. Went down hard and paid the price. Once is enough - not racing this one again next year. Great footage. thanks for posting !

    I considered doing this race. I'm glad I stayed home. I don't mind the cold but I'm not too keen on crashing. My first race this year will be one of the CCCX races in March.

    No CCCX for me. My next race is BP Winter crit in Folsom 02/09. If the knee swelling goes down I might even be able to train for it.

    Someone breaks a hip there every year. It is too early to start racing.
