Back to it.
I really enjoy riding my mountain bike.
I also really enjoy racing it.
First race went extremely well – I’m happy with the result.
Finished 5th out of 22 in my age group, 22nd overall out of 230+. The 4 guys who beat me were all in the top 8, so even though I missed a podium spot this time around, I’m quite pleased with the turnout.
Everything was ON for the day – training has been good, bike was flawless, and I pushed myself harder than I ever have before. Guess there was something left to prove as I won’t be back till August from the sounds of it.
In the meantime … I got a store to take care of. And yep, that does in fact take priority.
