Great Race and a Great time


Well for the first in a long time I was very nervous at the start of the race , had a good start and then it fell apart for the first half of the first lap, got my wits back and started to get moving. Second lap was a little better felt stronger and started to pass more people but was in no mans land for the singlespeeders.
Felt great going into the third lap and rode everything but the two big hills that I thought I would be able to when I changed from my 18t to my 20t but no dice, I should have just kept the 18t on and had a little more power in the singletrack but live and learn.
It was great to see all the racers again and get to camp with the team. The team had a great day and we put 7 people up on the boxes for the bling bling and that always is great.
My time was better then last year even with the added course and Bubba only got me by 3and a half mins not 10 like normal so I felt good. I just talked to Bubba and it sounds like we are going to do a slow recovery road ride tonight starting at 6:00pm from hoyt.
Just wanted to thank all the people who came out to cheer and do handoff's for the team, hope you all had fun...................
SEE YA..................................................................................

Remember, it's not who rides the bike the fastest, it's who finishes the course fastest.

so, running up the hills is a-ok! Next time, bigger gear and you'll only lose by 3 mins to Bubba ;-)
