Moved Into The Top 20....Finally!



Bob from the Trek Demo Tour shows us how to park the Toureg!

Today's top dawg Adam Craig makes it look easy

Well there you have it, the series is officially over and on the last effort of the year I managed to pull off a 16th in the STXC. Today was one of those days that it took longer than normal to hurt (I was going to say "Didn't Hurt" but that would have been a huge lie!). Adam Craig attacked on the final decent in typical form to sprint out Kabush for the win!

After a brutal travel schedule and rookie status, I managed to mustard up a 23rd overall placing in the XC and 19th in the STXC. I am excited to say that I feel I can make another go at it again next season, with even more motivation. In a sport that isn't necessarily the most rewarding financially it more than makes up for it if you have that "passion" to ride your bike!

Stay tuned for stories from the road as I drive from Vermont to Boulder...
