Default Race Results For Today

     

I raced the Hilltoppers desert scramble today. It was a fast short course. I am guessing 30 miles. It was over before I knew it. I was still in energy conservation mode when I crested the last hill and saw the finsh about 3 miles down the valley. I went wide open to the finish from there.
Conditions were epic with all the rain we had earlier in the week. The top 1/2" was dry and below that moist. The one drawback to that is the cross grain was sharper than normal due to the runoff. It really gave the arms a workout with the chattering terrain.

We had a Lemans start and I was going on the first kick. I was told by a team mate that it was fast and no dangerous spots on the bomb run so I twisted the throttle and for the first time I was running with the top 10-12 guys to the bomb.

I did lose the ribbon once but picked it up pretty quick. I had no falls or stalls today which is a milestone for me. I did do a little crazy Ivan on a loose hillclimb. The rocks were volleyball down to tennis ball sized, most in the 3-4" diameter range. They were all loose and when I started up the trail there was already 3 guys stalled on the hill. I went out into the rocks to pass them and when it came time to get back on the trail I couldn't do anything but keep turning left to keep my balance. Once I got crazy Ivan a few times I pulled in the clutch and brake and gathered myself then took off right up the hill.


I think I finished 3rd in class and 57th overall 1 loop. If I got third that will be awesome for my points and my best finish yet. I should jump ahead of a few guys that I was tied with in points with 3rd place in class.

Thanks for reading

Well the ankle does great while out in the dez its just after each race it tightens up a little reminding me of the Geezeritis. The good news is it tightens less each time.

I only have one choice Don keep going out racing and riding.

Ernie yes I am still excited, third is my best finish since I started racing this year. You might remember back in January my first two races before wrist surgery, I had 11th in both.

Due to my surgery and broken thumb, I missed more than half the seasons races. I counted it up and yesterday was my 9th desert race ever.

I did come away from GMB III with a renewed resolve to have fun with my racing and riding. I also have a tremdous amount of respect for the Berg Family and what they go thru to participate in the celebration of Garrett's life each year.

Lastly I came away with a new confidence in my own riding ability and that I know helped.
