Caleb April 24

Well it seems safe to say the season has changed. No leg warmers, booties, or vests were needed for this race. 24 racers in the A field with Jon Benskin finishing 5th, Mick Bryson finishing 13th and Chopper Dan and myself DNFing. I was comfortable most of the race playing it safe and trying to be smooth through the corners. The back stretch was full of accelerations each lap but I seemed to be in the right place at the right time. I got dropped with 5 laps to go after pulling through up the climb (mistake!). Chopper Dan was good to go until the penultimate lap. Both of us left the course a little sour but happy with the growth nonetheless. Jon continues to race in fine form with another strong placing. And Mick pulled out another solid race slowly finding glimpses of his earlier racing prowess.
16 year old Erik Evans continues his strong season racing in the Bs. He's been in the bunch at the finish each race he's participated in. Yes. 16 years old. Kit him up.
Next race is Latoria next week. In the meantime, enjoy the sun!
