Today was the Cyclocross race on Reus. It was so windy and cold, but it was super sunny!
I try the track and it was amazing, perfect for my transformed PoloAndBike Single Speed
Cyclocross. It was a dirt track with sand and gravel and some dry mud.

The circuit was the shortest from the Catalonian Championship, 1,5km. After the first lap,
the judges decide that we should do 14 laps. The terrain was all dirt. The obstacles this
time were: 2 hills in one, a big one follow by a turn and a little one; a super cool double
drop downhill; a dry mud zone; and 2 stairs zones.

This race was super fast because the altitude increase was zero.
This was my perfect terrain and perfect race!
