Cheyenne Mountain XC
What a great weekend! After having good legs in Fontana a few weeks ago I was pretty excited to go to Colorado Springs. It feels like it's been so long since I've had good races that it's really motivated me more than before. Sure enough I had another really good day and was able to keep the big boys in sight. I have never been so close to the lead of the race at finish. Like I said earlier, the course is amazing there. Fast, and technical.
I can't explain how great it felt to be on again at this race. Although I once got a 6th place finish back in 07, this is a much better result for me, truly one of my best races yet. I hope I can keep building on this. A huge thanks goes to everyone at Honey Stinger, team and work, and also everyone else who was out there on course yelling and cheering. Congrats to Mitch Hoke for his win and Kalan Beisel in 2nd!
Those boys can ride bikes!
