16th. 22s behind you. I have a goal.I never thought I would be stoked to see 14th place.

I think you're reading too much into my comments. I'm simply reporting data.I am familiar with that Cat2 that you referred to. I'm not friendly with him but have been smoked by him on the road since he began racing. He is new to CX. He is starting at the bottom rung the same way everyone else should.
There is no correlation between Road, MTB, and CX. You are not comparing apples to apples. Making assumptions based on a racer's experience in another discipline is simply wrong. It is unfair to that racer and damaging to the sport.
Thanks for the results post.
Interesting results once again. I did 5 laps, followed Ben and the camera around for all of them and yet still came up with only doing 3 laps. The goal was to finish on the lead lap unlike the week before when crossaddict and the other 35+ racer blew by me like I was standing still but still on the lead lap for the 2/3/4 race.
