Old Capital Weekend

Alright, fun weekend of racing!!!

Sat was the road race in Sharron Center, very nice course...with a lot of amish fans! haha

First lap I could feel my legs were not great, and accelerating up the finish hill to break up the bad riders would not be good later on. I was dropped by our group of 7 off the front, and soloed for a bit before hooking up with 3 stragglers. Let them pull me around and beat them on the line. Brian and Jimmy placed in top group, awesome ride! I wasn't to disapointed though, Im not a good climber.

Sunday was the OCC in beautiful downtown Iowa City. Great day, 80+ and blue skies. Our race was off at 10:30, legs didn't feel good today, but today was my kinda race. Stayed in the back about 10 wheels all the time, we broke up the 32 man field into aout 15 guys or so in the front. Last lap, I moved up to 6th wheel on hill, the around 2nd to last right, into 3rd wheel. Started the sprint and was ahead, Brian came up and out reached me by a tire, no kidding thats all he had on me. No rim involved haha. I still think that line slants backwards so he had the advantage :)..JK Brian, awsome race!! I was glad to see one of our little group get it. Jimmy ended up in 5th. I can't wait to join him and Vanderhorst on Mercy next year.

Watched as Brian Jenson (Trek/VW) lapped the entire Pro field on way to victory, wow! What a strong guy on form! It was also good to see Reid Mumford (Jelly Belly) in his new colors!

Good job to everyone!
