state champs again

Epic conditions for the 2010 MN CX state champs today. Rode up to the race, which took over an hour through the fresh and wet snow. We got lucky and got behind a county plow after coming out of Wirth Pkwy, so the riding was mostly smooth from there; the snow still fogged lenses and stung eyes, making for blinding conditions even with the cleared street, however.

Anyway, take a look at the set, or jump to the shots I got of the crashes.

the Men's CAT 1/2 start was intense with four men abreast out of the first turn:
MN Cyclocross Championships - 2010

Men's Olympic slalom bronze medalist, now racing CX, and now a dollar richer:
MN Cyclocross Championships - 2010

there were a few crashes:

this one got decent air, sorry about the lack of proper framing, you have to give me more warning:
MN Cyclocross Championships - 2010

That's it for now.
