Got back from Mexico and decided to fly out to the East coast to see how fast everyone is going in X. Thought I might get a couple UCI points for Portland. Had to line up a fair ways back,with no UCI points, thus had a mediocre start. Hooked up with Todd Wells for a lap or so, then rode a couple laps with Ben Jacques-Maynes and finally got into the top ten. Rode hard the last lap because I knew I was going to get outsprinted by anyone I was with, having only a 39 X 12 for a big gear. I’ve had a little of a lung thing going for a month or so and a little Montezuma’s revenge the last week, so I was happy only finishing a couple minutes back, considering I was a minute back after a lap. Off to New Zealand for the Tour of Southland next week and back to the US for the last couple Crank Brother’s Races in the Northwest.

Thought I’d go to Mexico and get some fitness for the upcoming Cyclo-X season. Little did I know that much of the race was over 8000 ft. altitude. I hate altitude. Finally got some form the last couple stages. Results are below.
