huh, I wasn't expecting that.

Well, I wish I could say that my month of training wasn't for nothing, I wish I could say that I had a good race, I wish I could say that I made it to the circuts with the rest of the riders and finished, I wish I could say I saw the first 5 miles of the Univest course...

Well, I wish I could say that my month of training wasn't for nothing, I wish I could say that I had a good race, I wish I could say that I made it to the circuts with the rest of the riders and finished, I wish I could say I saw the first 5 miles of the Univest course...but the creul reality is it was, i didn't, not even close, and I only finished 4 miles before flatting out of a 100 mile race. So, after a nice road marshall, named Ray, drove me back to the finish line, I watched the rest of the racers on the big screen for the next 3 hours while getting soaked by that bitch, hurricane Hana.

Despite all MY problems... it was a pretty awesome race. There were two jumbotrons with great coverage of the entire race, I think it can still be seen on universalsports.com. There were hundreds of people watching the finish in a complete downpour. I also got to see my mother for the first time in a long time.

Keck Baker and Ken Johnson had a great race along with my brother Chad, by making it with a group of about 25 to the finishing circuts before the time cut. The officials decided to have them sprint after 2 of the remaining 11 laps. Chipotle dominated by finishing 1st, 3rd, and 4th.

I think Chipotle was the only team that didn't show up for the crit. The course was pretty good with a couple of tight corners and a screaming downhill and a long run up to the finsh. Doylestown was a pretty cool town as well. I thought I would feel a little flatter after not having ridden since Tuesday but I actually felt pretty good. Got into a small break with about 15 laps to go with an inferno guy and got to see myself on the big screen, and I managed to finish about 15th place. Chad finished up right behind around 20th with Keck and Sean soon thereafter.

The A squad had a pretty good time in Michigan on Saturday. Russ won the NRC Priority Health race and elevated Battley Harley-Davidson to the best Amateur team in the country. Dave and Evan had an unfortunate crash in the last couple of laps but were ok.
