HCC Marshalling - HCC Crit:
Given my lack of riding recently, I felt it might be of benefit to me to marshal D grade before lining up for A. In hindsight, i think it affected my own racing. Not so much because the pace was ridiculous, more how much the extra time in the heat/humidity drained me.

When Alby launched off the line, I had a moment of pleasure at the thought that the race may take it easy. It didn't, and after 25 of the 40 minutes we had to race, I pulled the pin. I'd been watching my heart rate climb into the mid to high 180bpm range, and feeling my will to respond to the constant attacks die away.

Oh well, it's done. Given the weather they were forecast yesterday (for today), I was happy to be racing at all.
