Rider Updates

Another hot september weekend in Texas. I just put on the big tank, so pitting was not an issue at this track. I could go without stopping and losing precious seconds to the other riders in the race. The track was good. The dirt was nice, but big braking and acceleration bumps were forming everywhere on the track. One o'clock eventually came around on Sunday afternoon and it was time to race. The flagger dropped the flag and I gave it all I had off the line. It was a funny start at this race, we were lined up at the base of a groomed hill and it flattened out quickly at the top. This resulted in jumping as you reaced the top of the hill. It was fun but kind of wierd, probably because I had never done anything like it before. I really enjoyed it though, mainly because I pulled a pretty sick holeshot. The 80 minute race was on. The first four riders instantly pulled away from the rest of the pack. This was not because it was dusty, there was no dust on the track. All I know is that it felt like I was going fast, so I guess I was. I led the first three laps, slowly pulling away from 2nd-4th. At the start of the fourth lap though, I got a little pumped up and slowed down. Second caught me and got by me. I wasn't ready to quit there though. I followed him for the next half lap and then he messed up and I got by for the lead again. Another guy had moved into second place and was charging hard. He got by me after a near death pass. He pulled away a little bit, so I concentrated on staying consistent. I caught back up to him and passed him. The only problem was that the guy that had been in third began charging hard. He got by me and I was in second yet again. I stayed with him for the remainder of the race, or at least until the last lap. I had gotten big blisters on my thumbs and they killed! The checkered flag was thrown and I ended up 15-20 seconds off of first. We finished 4 minutes ahead of third and like 6 minutes ahead of fourth. It was a good ra
