Road of Hard Knoxville – Road Nats

I did a road race. Like, a big one. It was USA PRO National Championships. For Pros. I am not a pro. I am not a roadie. I am only just becoming a pro cyclocross racer, and that is a stretch for the coming year (quit my job, not pulling a salary, so not sure when one become “pro”). For …
