Two different riders with two very different experiences at the same race!!! Check out what Shaina Kravitz and Amanda Rinderer thought about the 6th Annual Cooper River CX race last weekend!!
Shaina Kravitz's reacap of the day!!!
"4th today. I wasn’t aggressive enough at the start and had to work too much to drop the group of four I got stuck in. We got gapped off the front group by lap 2. It’s a power course, wide turns with a lot of flow, so lots of pedaling. It was drizzly early in the day, so it was finally tacky, not dusty and dry. Felt good, could have put more power down, but wanted to stay upright and keep from cramping again. It’s still too hot for cross!"
2018 teammate Amanda Rinderer's thoughts on the day...
To finish off 2017 I got my butt handed to me at Cooper River. Low power, low stamina = 16th out of 24. I was tired and sloppy on the few obstacles they had and not enough power on the straight a-ways to pass other riders after the second lap. I was also anxious at the start and took time to settle in. Still, it was a good time. And I didn’t fall or face plant! Looking forward to being strong again!
