See, I don't lose ALL the time.
I won today! It had been a long while since I've pulled off a "W" and let me tell you, it felt good. I'm going to make the leap tomorrow from Cat. 4 to Cat. 3, so we'll see if the success continues. I'd like to formally thank Mr. Scott Louis Wenzel for his 4 weekends of selfless soigneur work. It makes a huge difference to have someone to keep me company, hand up bottles, make sure my spare wheels make it to the pits, and most importantly provide me with plenty of pictures and videos.
Also, thanks to Chris Lighthiser for making it out to see the race today. I won a truing stand at a collegiate mountain bike race once, and sold it on eBay for like 60 bucks, but next to that, today's race had the biggest payout I've ever gotten. I ended up leaving with 24 bottles of Great Divide Brewery beer. I sent Chris home with a 6 pack and donated the rest to the folks at the bike shop. I hope everyone enjoys. We'll see how tomorrow goes, I'll try to update after tomorrow's race and let everyone know how it went. Mike and Jen are coming to watch, so hopefully I can put on a good show.
