spiked:16/17c shoes: NB 1210 "Leadville"
Sprint at Northstar Resort near Truckee, CA, a prelude to the US 2-Day Classic Champs. A mix of forest (with ski and mtb trails) and urban (in the village at Northstar). Sunny, dry and low 70's with low oxygen.
Had a decent run, losing 20-25 seconds on the 3rd control but hitting the rest OK. Several hesitations to be sure I knew what I was doing and felt the lack of oxygen on the uphill final control and finish run-in. Second M60 (48 sec behind Rick, 2 sec ahead of Soupbone) and about 10th or so on Green (behind mostly M50s and F20s). Phil was one second faster, but he took a shortcut.
