Donaldson Center RRs
Well saturday was sunny and warm in Greenville sc, and windy to the point of being rediculous. The wind made the race really hard. And a sweet pothole took out 4 of our guys, what bad luck is that! A break got off the front again just like last week and stuck til the end. I have to thank Dan and Rob for helping me through the last couple of laps and allowing me to be up there in the field sprint to finish 14th overall.
After the injuries throughout the team sent a couple teammates home, we were left with only three guys, and after Lucas flatted, only two to contest the finish. sunday was good weather, and still windy, but not nearly like the day before. Jason did an awesome job keeping me out of trouble and toward the front, he got me up into the top ten wheels for the sprint which i finished third in, but unfortunantely there was a break that stuck again, so I was 9th overall.
A pretty solid start to the season, I am very happy with how my Banner Elk form has worked out in these early races. The sprinting is coming around, if only there was a climbing race soon, ugh. Now I get to rest up and enjoy a few weekends of the collegiate scene.
