Gerbil Race (12 hours of Dauset)

That was the hardest I've ever worked to win anything in my life. Serious. The short story is I spent the first third of the race chasing a strong chick with gears. When that wasn't working out so well for me, I spent the second third of the race sitting in 2nd place with no motivation at all. I crashed hard going super fast (trying to make up time on the steep downhill---the only place I could make up time) and thought my race was over. Then, I spent the last third of the race in 1st place hauling ass to keep it. Whew, I'm so glad it's over. I'm in a world of hurt today. I think that is the last 12 hour race I will do. It sucks to get done at 10pm, pack up, and get home at 2am (after eating everything in sight at Dennys!)

Thanks to Kim Moore for the race, Clifford and Lisa for the once again wonderful support, Gone Riding for another awesome event, and of course to my sponsors: Vassago Cycles, Industry Nine, WTB, White Brothers, Twin Six, Light & Motion, Bike29.com, BURN Energy Drink, Tifosi, Ergon, and 55nine Performance.
