Another great weekend out at the races! With rain in the forecast for the entire weekend I was unsure of what to expect heading into Saturday’s practice session. Cloudy skies and scattered rain showers meant the conditions for this race were absolutely perfect. I quickly tested my limits and found myself crashing on the ground. After “dusting” myself off and catching my breath, I headed back up to get my lines dialed. I soon found that my KHS 650 and this race track were a match made in heaven, flowing together almost seamlessly.
Race day quickly came around, which saw more participants and spectators than the previous two races. More rain came down over night, and continued to come down well into practice. With track conditions less than ideal, and two consistent runs needed, I figured the best option would be to tame it down ever so slightly in the rocks, focusing mainly on the pedaling lower down. In the end it worked out for me, and I was able to claim my third consecutive win in this five race series.
