2015 -16 Kansai Cyclocross / #10 in Sakai

This past weekend  the Kansai CX season came one step closer to a close with #10 (of 11) taking place at Minato Sakai Green Square. The venue is next to the ocean, and compared to some of the other courses, extremely flat.  As a result it would be a day of some very fast paced and exciting racing to say the least, especially with the large amount of entries. Having finally figured out the online entry system a few weeks before (I had been entering via mail before) I decided to enter this race as it is fairly close to Nara.  Needless to say despite a few mishaps, the race was a blast!  I was fortunate enough this time to start in the early group so I was able to finish, grab my camera, and then run around to shoot a few photos. As always, the day went way too fast and I am already looking forward to the season final in Kyoto!
