First off I want to say what a great job that clay, Grant and all the rest of the people did putting this race on, when I take part in a race that has so much love and care put into it I feel good about racing my bike, this race will definitely be an annual thing for me. also I want to thank Kevin how volunteered his time to support me the whole race I owe you big time man. Now to the actual race, the night before it rained pretty hard and left the course very muddy. The first lap was a night mare my bike got clogged up so badly with mud that I actually came to complete stops on the down hills. When i finally finished the lap I had lost 25 minutes on the lead so with a fresh clean bike I put my head down and went to work. The second lap was a 100% improvement everyone took all the mud of the course with their bikes. Every lap the course got faster and I felt great by the middle of the day I had moved into 3rd place and started to pressure the leaders I pushed till the end but the first lap deficit proved to be to much. Tinker won, Brandon got second and I came in third.
