I think I can say I had the best weekend of mountain bike racing I have ever had. I traveled the country for about 3 years in 04-06 doing all the NORBA races and if I could have had just one weekend like the one I had at WORS this weekend it might have changed a lot of things for me. None the less, I was really happy to finally show myself that I had it in me to ride at the front in a pro short track, and also ride close to the top 10 of a cross country. I think top 10 would definintely had been possible had I not been staged 71st on the back row, I rode through riders the entire race and picked off 4-5 on the last lap, but it's impossible to ride into the lead group starting that far back.
Huge thanks to Don Edberg at WORS for putting this on and really treating everyone to a fantastic weekend of racing. I really don't think I've ever been to a Pro XC race before with that many fans, that cool of a course and that good of racing. I think all the riders in all the categories enjoyed it all and it was definitely a success and hopefully comes back next year. I think for the Pros especially it was exciting to have a World Cup style course with fans to make it exciting, it was for me.
