After the pre-ride, we went to a pizza place called the Mellow Mushroom for some carb-loading. The three of us were so hungry we totally downed this whole pizza. Ok, I know the pizza looks gigantic, but it was just the way my dad took the picture. We're not THAT piggish!
The next morning we showed up to the park bright and early as usual to get set up and warmed up before the kids' races. One thing we noticed as it got closer to time for the races was that there were hardly any kids there. In fact, there were only 5 kids total and no girls at all. So for the second week in a row, there was only 2 of us in the 9-11 year old class. I think a lot of kids (and dads) probably skipped this race because it was Father's Day. Even with so small a number of kids, my dad still put together a video. He says the videos of the little kids are his favorite to make.
Also, for the second week in a row, the white wave went off at 11:30. Holy cow, was it hot!! It felt like it was 1000 degrees out there. The course was mostly wide open with very little shade and wound through a disc golf course. This was great for the spectators, who could follow the racers at many points on the course, but not so good for riders racing in the middle of the day.
Dad got a check for coming in first in his class too.
