Results have been posted, and just as I suspected; a solid midpack finish. I was happy to see that managed a top half, and despite the fact that my finish is pretty far from competitive in the Sport catagory, it is a fine result considering my feelings on the bike during the race. I knew very early on my goal was not really aiming for a top 10 finish. The slickness of the trails and my limited technical abilities and confidence on the day assured me of that.
The Sport winner was faster each lap. If only I had the increasing confidence that he apparently managed. In the Pro/Expert race Aimee's neighbor and ex-coworker and current friend/s husband Colby pulled out a 4th place finish in the muck. Congrats to Colby; accompanied by complete and utter envy after seeing him roll by the line on his Gary Fisher Super Fly. Damn, I had no idea he had one of those!
