Some Comfort TX race pics

The first pic is of me about to finish the TT. My goal was not to let the guy in the background pass me. He had already made up the 2 minuet gap but there was no way he was getting around me. I was shooting through those to trees, theres a root across the drop that i was using to launch off down the trail. I look of pain was because after the drop there's a sharp left in gravel and i was trying to position my self to be able to do it at speed. If you look at my right fingers i had to jam the breaks real quick to bring the rear around to put me on the right line and it all worked. Once i hit i big ringed it and left him flat. Woohoo!

Cool Pics Ton,

Looks like it was a blast, plus you got a bike rack out of the deal! Cool.
