Rock Hopper Classic Race

May 14th, 2012

Jordan Anderson Race Report – 5/12/2012

I raced the RockHopper Classic XC today down in Vacaville. Cat 1 19-34 men, 3 laps, 9.5 miles each with a total of 4800 feet of climbing. A ton of single track I’d say about 80% of the course with two short fire road sections. There were 4 or 5 steep 100 foot long pops and the rest of the climbs had a decent pitch to them. The best part of the race was all of the switch backs on the last downhill, there were probably seven in a row. So, I had a decent start I was more towards the front, but by the end of lap one I was in the back of the pack. I haven’t ever felt as weak in a race before. I didn’t have any leg strength or cardio for the day , very dissapointing. I still had a blast though it was a good course. I don’t know what place I finished in but it was towards the back. Fun race.
