Ciutat de Mataró

Mataró was the second race of the 2011-12 Copa Catalana de Ciclocross. The 2.5 km course was quite technical with views of the Mediterranean. I felt a lot more comfortable racing, but lost a minute on the second lap due to a mechanical. Approaching the first of two steep run-ups, I reached to pick up my bike from the downtube and my hand pushed my rear derailleur cable loose. I didn't think the bike was rideable so I walked off the course. Somehow, miraculously, the cable tightened back up and I was able to finish the race. I'm already looking forward to racing this course again next year. Photo ©2011 Chesco Alaman
