Hopkins Park Cross

On Sunday, October 4 a few of us Wild Cards went up to DeKalb, Illinois, for the second race in the Chicago Cross Cup series, Hopkins Park CX. I went into it not expecting or hoping for much, despite Kyle's guarantee that in a bigger field there would be more women with whom I had a chance at competing. Last year I won the Heart of Illinois Women's Category 4 Series just for showing up to all six races - I was last in every single race and was fully expecting to be last again.

The short: Crash! (Photo: A confident smile on the bike at mile 70 was replaced 5 minutes later with multiple fractures and a collapsed lung, necessitating hospitalization.)
