After a summer plagued with injuries; my neck, back and hip issues are finally on the mend. I was able to string together a couple solid weeks of training with the idea of salvaging my season via cyclocross.
The Folsom Cyclebration is weekend long event offering road, mountain and cyclocross racing. The events sprawls across several places in Folsom and offers a carnival-type atmosphere with vendor tents and barbecues. It's something anyone interested in bike racing should check out and support in the future.
The cyclocross race took place on the Folsom Rodeo and Zoo grounds. Oddly right down the street from Folsom Prison. Folsom must like to keep their caged animals and criminals in the same place. However there were loose chickens running all over the course. Not a good sign for a keeping things "caged" in Folsom.
