UCI Cincinati OH

the start....
















mid race....













the end.

this race was totally kick ass. i had a great time. i started like 4th row and new before we even started i had a lot of work to do if i wanted to be in front. sure enough they went out pretty hard and there were pile ups on all the corners i suspected during warm up. after about 2 laps i was sitting great in about 5th or so and feeling good. i felt really comfortable and new i could get to the leaders. we came sweeping into the switch back section going pretty fast. some course ribbons had been torn away and were flailing into the middle of the course. (probably something from an earlier pile up) well sure enough the stake holding them in place was also in the middle of the course. i ran it over and it proceeded to wrap into my cassette. after throwing some loud F bombs i got it out and jumped back on my bike. it felt like the entire field went passed. i clawed back to 14th place out of around 38 guys or so. i felt really good the entire race and even after. i'm excited for lower huron this weekend. should be fun. i hope its muddy.
