Napa Valley Dirt Classic
Things went well in my season opener at the Napa Valley Dirt Classic. Beautiful weather and a good turnout made for a great weekend. I was stoked to have a couple of teammates down to race with. Matt (13th Pro Men) and Emma (5th place Pro Women) both did well and special thanks to Emma for getting me a Team Lost Coast jersey for the race! Even though my race went well things started off a little rough. The uphill start to the single track was chaotic as always and I unfortunately clipped my hand/handlebar on a metal trail guard and went down. Not a bad crash as far as crashes go but a little unnerving to say the least. I quickly got on my bike and was able to move towards the front of the group by the top of the starting climb. I felt good and was able to hold the lead the entire race; Matt Whittler and I raced together most of the day and finished strong. I was really impressed with the entire event and it was a nice introduction to local California racing. First place, Pro Single Speed.
