Wow what a big week and weekend , for me for sure but for many other folks too. It is always nice to see goals achieved, lessons learned and good times had. I won’t go to much into my week but basically I was on 6 start lines in a Week and Rode bikes (and danced) with many great people. So much fun on and off the bike.
Over the week I beat Geoff Kabush in Wed. Night World Champs then Embarrassed myself in Eliminator Thursday with a 1st round elimination at the hands of Raph Gagne + I messed up log hop. Salvaged my Pro-Card with 5th in XCO (minus knocking watson over and falling over going up hill … both left hand turns) . On xco finish line I interviewed Kabush on the line and offered to rub out his quad cramp (pKraiker holds the key). Sat night partied with cyclists, and friends thereof, at a country bar till late. Woke up (or got up more accurately) and ate an orange then won single speed ‘nationals’ by just under Steve Neal‘s Suggested 5min Margin. Quick pedal switch / Cleaned two bikes and started Team Relay for Trek Canada Team. Barely managed to stay “Pro” (see Gutherie Blog) coming in 2nd on the start lap after coming through everyone, including some fast ladies who started much faster then my fatigued self.
As I tweeted thanks to those out cheering and those that helped along the way.
