ICUP #1- St. George
It always feels good to stand on that box, especially this early in the season. It's been a long winter and the boys down south usually have a head start to the season so I was glad the SLC / UC crew represented. I counted about 20 in the SS class. I only recognized about half of them.
I felt like I had good legs but I knew I couldn't hang with Dan. He was able to put a nice gap on us early into lap 1. Must of been the 17 cog he was running (not to mention good lungs and legs). Kenny and I both ran 18's and we traded spots a couple of times during the race but he was too fast and got me by a second or two at the finish.
Despite taking 3rd, I was really happy with how the race went. I could not have gone any faster and left everything out there.
Good times catching up with all the racers.
I came home to some nice tiger stripes on my head and an instant farmer tan. It felt great to play in the warm sun.
