Unfortunately nothing interesting to say about the WA States at Arlington. All my fears from last year's race came true this year as there was no magical ingredient (rain) to make the course fun.
Flat as a pancake field with no creative twists and turns meant a power course without recovery. Note I even chose not to run my disc brake bike......
The one technical feature, a steep descent through a woody section was over way too quickly and only left one thinking 'what could have been....'
Still, after slogging through the boredom, I managed to take 5th place, and finally have a podium moment with my team mate Andi. That made everything better :)
