Jingle Cross Day 2

Much better today....didn't get the holeshot and I think I had a little more gas on the brutal run up on lap 1.....ended up in the chase group with Tristan, and Marko.....half way through the race we caught Ryan Iddings and the battle for the top 5 was on.

Marko crashed with 3 laps to go descending Mt. Krumpit.....Tristan started killing it with 2 to go and all I could do was hang on....stayed in good position and rode smooth lines....on the last lap we were dropping Iddings as Marko was quickly closing the gap. Marko ran out of time in catching us even though he got pretty close....Tristan finished 2nd and I was 3rd.

Happy to be on the UCI podium for the 2nd weekend in a row.

Photos soon...

Really awesome finish! Way to represent Wisco!! Between you and the Planet Bike crew, this state is now known for more than cheese and beer :-)
