NACCC’s Richmond Third Day: Qualifying, Open Championships

On Saturday, the qualifiers, open (non messenger) Championships, an amazing dinner, and afterparty all took place.  Like the rest of the days in Richmond this one was just freaking packed with activity.

Let's get into it.

This was my first ever race of this style and I ended up in third place in the Open Championships, not bad for a rookie.

Austin at the AC stop, Austin was clearly the fastest on the course and had a huge lead, but somewhere along the line he made a mistake and had to double back, costing him the win

All-City Hiroshima Fun Meeting
