speedgoat one two

a speedgoat one two went down at broadview today, gerry took first, i rolled in second.

condtions were cruddy - 33 degrees, snow blowing around, wetness and mud all around.

gun went off and 5 guys were duking it out for first place by the backside of the course - gerry, myself, tony, zak and brett.

soon, gerry myself and tony were away - and tony was catching me. seemed to be not finding my groove to well and tony soon caught me and opened up a gap.

half way point of any cross race is at 45 minutes - tony cracked and flatted around the same time. when he switched bikes, i caught him and he would finish in 3rd.

tough race - more mentally then physically. conditions were bad and it's just a thing of riding through it.

hats off to tony today - think it's the best finish for him in the "a" group to date and he rode really well.
