Grassy Turns

Yep another version of Sunburst Showdown is in the books. I didn't have the greatest race in the world, but not the worst either. After an OK start I was mentally ready to give 'er up the climb on Lap 2. I did, no problems, but then on the easy part of the lap I fell asleep. I let a 2 second gap turn into a 7 second gap, Marko finally went around me and I couldn't respond. Mike went around me and if it wasn't for a big push from Tristan I might have finished 30th. I pushed through a little pain, but I was riding in no mans land. 5 in front of me and a group of 3 or 4 chasing. On Lap 4 I couldn't see the leaders, but I saw Chris P with his big smile getting closer and closer. Something in my head flipped the switch and I started racing again. I was able to real back and passs Mike P and if the course had been another 1/4 mile I would have had to outsprint Tristan. Travis almost got his first ever WORS victory, but came up a bike length shy. Congrat's to Jesse who won his 6th straight WORS race and locked up the overall. What an Animal!




The sunburst course was so fast I felt like my brain was smashed to the back of my head.

Speaking of Grassy Turns....racing at Sunburst is the perfect transition for cross season. I am slowly getting the new bike dialed...here are a few secret photos.















I'm still not sure what cross race will be first on the schedule...Thinking about Michigan UCI now that WORS overall is out of the question.




Or maybe some WCA and a trip to CINCI to visit mom and dad.




Before I start too much cross season planning I have to focus on this #2.
