Northstar #5 of the series was again another combo of all Vista trails to avoid the heavily beaten Dog Bone. The trail combo for the track was Sinuous to Karpiel to Speed Control to Pho Dogg. I was feeling extremely well the entire weekend and my nelwy setup Raceface bar and stem combo were making my super confident pedaling into the gnarliest of things. I really love the feel of the bars, (definitely one of my favorites). After 5 or so practice runs, i had a minor technical and had to replace deraileur and cable..etc This didn’t phase me at all. I hopped on the bike and had about 2 more practice runs and then called it a day for some pizza in the village with the bros!
Come race day, everything felt right and i knew i could pull the win off. My bike was feeling as solid as ever and i had all the sections completely pinned. I went up for my race run and got in the line of riders at the top. Beep..Beep..Beep..Beep.Beep..Beep! Go! On that sixth and final beep and came out pedaling super hard. My whole run felt as smooth as ever and all the lines were coming extremely easy. I came across the finish and looked at the time. I had smashed the competition by a whopping 12.78seconds and took the 1st place podium.
I don’t think i could have done this without all the help and support from my sponors.
Thank you so much! #raceface #foxracingshox #pivothead #e*thirteen #trailheadcyclery #jetzone
