As best I can remember, the first race I did was the Tour de Strongland race in Apollo, PA. Drivetrain was screwy so it was like racing with a single speed.
Then remember doing the Month of Mud Brady's Run race. Couldn't believe after the first lap that we had to actually do another lap. I think some expert racers lapped me before I finished my first lap.
I'm guessing I did the rest of the Month of Mud races in beginners division, and finished fourth overall, I believe.
