My First Road Race

Juniper Hills Road Race

I registered for the UCLA Shut Up Legs Road Race as a Category 5 rider. Drove an hour and a half out to Palmdale for a 9:50 am start. Heavy wind from the west. Started in a field of 50 riders. We climbed over 2600 feet in 2 laps of 12.4 miles each. I really pushed myself to stay with the front group for as long as I could but eventually I found myself alone most of the time on the second lap. It was a beautiful ride. Joshua Trees everywhere. We got up into the snow line, too. Don't know how I finished but I'm hoping for a top 25.
