USGP @ Mercer


Friggin mud-fest. Sticky, thick mud. No place on the course to recover. Ran a good portion of at least the 1st 2 laps. On the + side, my start went well and I was pretty fast. But that was it. This was one of the 5 hardest races I've ever done. Another +, the Fangos did well. A beautiful day, temps in the 60s at race time, 70s by the time the Elites went off. 49th of 54 finishers; not sure how many DNF'd. Since it was a 2-4 Masters race, I wasn't surprised that I got lapped. Actually was kind of glad. That which doesn't kill you......
Also saw another HUP rider doing the B's. Not sure who he was.

I thought that might be him. He did look good.

Picture says it all, looked like you were giving it all you had,. Can't do much more then that. Way to go. Get ready for Rockburn!

That race was at least as hard as Sanders. A solid 7 skulls on crossresults dot com. I wasn't too upset with my placing; definately wasn't my kind of race (although, if it had been dry, it would have been...)
