The highlight of the season, without a doubt, was participating in the Jr.Mtn
Bike Camp at Michigan Tech. It was so rewarding to go to the UP and go riding with the juniors. Not only did I discover some great trail systems in Houghton and Copper Harbor, but I also made some good friends and had a blast doing so in the process. Plans for 2011 are in the making.
The racing was solid. 2 seconds away from another Triple Crown...lost the 6 man sprint at Ore To Shore, but won the 3 man battle at Chequamegon, and won my 3rd Iceman against the best in the country.
Cyclocross season was also solid...I won my first 2 UCI races, just missed out on a top 10 overall in the USGP, and had a solid euro campaign. Most importantly I finished the season in good physical and mental form. With the ultimate goal being Worlds in Louisville it was important for me to delay the start of my season. I sacrificed some early races and maybe even Ore To Shoe, but I was strong throughout the entire cross season and that was a big goal. For years I've been on the schedule of finishing my season at Iceman, so it will take a while to adjust to be in peak shape in late Jan 2012.
Again thanks to Gear Grinder and all my other sponsors for your support. Thanks to my family for all the sacrifices you make to help me reach my goals.
With the end of the season here I need to free up some space in the garage. New equipment is already arriving!
