More cross, at MidWeek, more Mayhem //-.-

More cross, at MidWeek, more Mayhem. Thanks to Keith and his gang for putting together such awesome courses at midweek the entire Terrascape gang has shown up for an spectacular team work in the A and B groups. Tonight I just had a blast !! fighting (literally) the entire race with Amit for 3rd place was an amazing feeling.... I lined up in the front and went out pretty hard the first lap. I was in 2nd place for most of the third and fourth lap and wasn't sure if I was going to be able to hold it till the end. In the last two laps I found myself blocking Amit in the corners again the trees (well, we are racing aren't we??) I figure it was kind of fun blocking him as he was trying to pass in the inside and then making him work a bit harder to avoid the low branches from getting caught on his helmet LOL... half way through the last lap Amit and the other guy were slowing down a bit when I yelled at them "come on guys let's work together!!!!!" darn, when am i going to learn that I shouldn't be encouraging others to go harder???? anyway, i just thought we were slowing down and didn't want to get caught by the fifth guy. As we were running up the hill I was shoulder to shoulder with Amit (I bet been a ranger pays off, the guy runs up pretty fast).. up the hill and on our bikes at the same time and fighting in the down hill and last flat to the finish line !! got in 4th this time, but got pretty close to podium again. I never saw the guy that came in first after the second lap, I think it was an A rider sandbagging in B, so that will put me in the podium with an awesome 3rd place yupiiiiiii.
