Ok I’ll start it off with Super D…. It was a cold (40’s) and drizzly am 😦 I dragged kerin out of bed and we headed up to grab a fullface helmet from Matt and then over to Vail Lake.

I reg’d ~11:30am and we on the first shuttle up at 12:00… I could already tell my legs were junk 😦 Hiking and traveling had killed me but its all in fun so I hit the first shuttle slow and scouted.
2nd shuttle @ 1pm headed up and moved a lill quicker though my legs just didn’t have the pop to sprint!
We took the final shuttle up ~2pm and I chatted with Eric Carter as he came out to support the local lill race scene (

Robert got the race started and I had a crap start and couldn’t get clipped in! damnit! I got stuck behind a few slower riders on the first single track section, but once it opened up I passed a couple people and then was on my way, on the lill climb I passed another rider and got in a better groove. We hit the BMX park and I should have been pumping stuff and railing berms but my legs didn’t have the snap to sprint out of the corners like I can….
I ended up in 2nd sport 19-29…. but could have done better (I was also the ONLY guy on a hardtail 🙂
