Drizzled/rained most of the race. Two roundabouts and some pretty tight corners made today's race interesting. 9 laps of 3 miles each in the cat 4's. Counted about 8-10 wrecks in the rain soaked corners. I got caught behind three that required quite a bit of work on my part to catch back up to the field. Final stretch was 200 meters up hill, right after one of the roundabouts. I came out of the corner in 3rd, 20 meters back from the top 2 riders. I caught one at the line after a tough sprint to finish 2nd. Payout was big, as this was the highest prize list for a one day race in Missouri. Bett part of the story is the 5 points I won today give me 19 total toward my cat 3 upgrade I'm just about there!
Big props go out to Mike Weiss and Big Shark Bicycle in St. Louis for putting on such a great event and to the city of O'Fallon for hosting us.
