So on tuesday i went up to kelso with Katlyn for the weekly race they hold there. We had done a few of them last year before the O-Cup there and that was our plan for this year aswell. The went pretty good. Going in to it i was a little sore from the weekend's training. The plan was to practice pacing people in the single track and also passing some there too. First lap i just sat in to get an idea for the course (it was a pretty sweet one as always). Things went well. Second lap trevor and i started to pull away a bit. Wasn't pushing to 100% but still pushing a bit. He was a local to the area and so i thought i would hold his wheel through the trails and learn the good lines. Third lap i passed Trevor and started to pull. in the single track i heard Trevor fall. I held back to see if he was ok and and then it was my cue to drop the hammer. Ended up taking the win!!!
Good race, had a little trouble onthe climb with the loose gravel and sand. Also i found myself slipping around on some of the corners. I'm going to have to play with the tire pressure to find the right one.
Can't wait for the next one, and the 8x12 this week
