Brian Head Utah XC Report

Note to self... When the race starts at 9600 feet, don't bury the needle right off the gun. It is easy to "try" to dig deep to hang with the top dawgs on a wide open road start. I was just off the lead group cresting the first 6 mile climb, but this effort only resulted with me struggling to maintain position for the rest of the epic 28 mile loop. As a rookie it is easy to get "Star Struck" and try to push my limits a little too far. I need to recognize my place in the pack and pay my dues, one race at a time.

Brian Head offered us up a little bit of everything: straight up climbs, beautiful tight single track, wet muddy roots, and long drawn out rollers. When the dust settled I ended up somewhere in the late twenties which seems to be my place in the Pro field. I had a solid effort but am really motivated to break through to the top twenty...

Stay tuned as the man of the day, Jeremiah Bishop, calls in with his second place race report! Huge effort from a man who is training at just over 1000 feet! Congrats JB!
