    A lot to still learn in sthi sport..

    Enjoying my second season of Cyclocross and showed up at Saturdays race and dressed how I always do when it's 24 degrees.

    The only problem is that I normally commute at this temperature, not race...

    I totally soaked all 5 layers from head to bottoms in 34 minutes.... still had fun.

    Next time.....

    General rule of thumb is to dress like it is 20 degrees warmer.

    If you're warm at the start of a race (or even a non-competetive ride) then you're over-dressed.
