Rode to the race, hammered out 2 laps, then rode home, all on the one speed. Total time in the saddle a little over 4 hrs. I am spent, but couldn't be happier. After all it is Memorial Day and what better way to honor the troops than not putting money into the hands of those that kill us.
Brad Keyes and Kenny Jones, they got 2nd and 3rd. I have no qualms saying the singlespeed class is the second toughest class to race after the pros. Dont believe me, race these two! Something like 17 or 18 starters today and not a single slow one in the bunch. You dont race singlespeed if you dont have the legs to start with!
Stephen Wasmund had a solid race, he got 6th in the singlespeeds. Hey Stephen, didnt you win every single cross race you entered this past year on the one speed? He hooked me up with a slice so I could make it home.
Classic Fox! Look at his tongue dangling in the wind! If its done on a bike, Fox can do it.
Motivation, enough said!
Oh, I can't forget to thank UTrider for cheering for me and storing my bag while I raced. Its cool to see people new to the sport carry so much enthusiasm!
