Thanksgiving Weekend

Well last weekend racing down and Denver was a good time. Though the drive over from Grand Junction was just a mess with all the snow and traffic. The course on Saturday was real fun and technical. Along with it being really bumpy and muddy and had a good steep s-turn climb which started to hurt after a couple of laps. And the whole team had some good results.

Than it was Sundays race witch was also another great course. Warming up on the course it was really slick and muddy. It was like a slip and slide. Though by the time we started the mud harden up a little bit but was still slick. Then we got the call ups to the front line. I had an awesome start and was off the front at the beginning. Andrew and Robin followed and we worked together to make a bigger gap from the field. Kevin was just behind us with a Pro Peloton racer and was working for us by trying to slow him down. Andrew had some bad luck and had a mechanical with his bike causing him to drop back from the break. With about two or so laps to go Kevin started to bridge his way up. Never did get up to us but did make a gap from the fellow Pro Peloton racer. Robin attacked on the last lap to get the win. I took 2nd and Kevin took 3rd, sweeping the podium which was awesome. Andrew and Yannick finished up strong finishing up not far behind.
