pats peak moutain bike race 2008

The course seems to stair step up the mountain in 3 good sized climbs. After the second stair step I found my self with Brent Mellen and Matt Boobar. I road with them for the first couple laps. Good riders to be with, seeing as they both did rely well @ mount snow last year and I feel like this race is pretty similar to mount snow (only smaller). @ some point in the third lap i found myself alone. I was on my own for the rest of the race. I did pass Matthew O'Keefe in the last lap but it wasn’t much of a battle He was obviously bonking or dehydrated. O'Keefe normally kicks my ass.

My parents were nice enough o show this time. they handed off water bottles and cheered (thanks). They were trying to keep track of my position. I came in 10th. Adam Snyder (fellow fort lewiser) killed it, winning the race and Andrew Freye my teammate also had a great race coming in 2nd. rest of the results

Next race is channel 3. This ones a lot of fun when its dry, there’s a few sections where you can ride hard into corners as long as it isn’t wet.
