MR. BIGG GOES TO IOLA
Race time! Lined up next to 'Goat to put a pair MM's together on the front row. Don says GOOOO!, Nathan G blows a chain in front of evereyone, first climb gets physical but sorts out quickly. Drop into the bowl and loose both watebottles, PHUCK! First lap, settle in and try not to pop. Second lap catch MarkO and ride with him. Third lap, lay it down in the ST and pop my R. brake lever out of socket allowing Mark to get by. Catch Mark after getting back in the groove of only having a front brake. Rode it out in nomans land with the Darkness at my back. Out of the pines & sprint to the finish. 7th place! Best finish to date, i'll take it!
Huge thanks to Jay & The Boy for having all the hand ups i needed, Russell(1st in comp clydes!) and the whole Hayes/Sun Rims team for their support, Mitchman for the solid bike and Tbone for the ride up.
