This is a really hard post to keep brief, but I am going to try. As far as the race went, my teammate Sam “Blitz” Krieg and I ended up lapping the field, and then I won the field sprint so that was the sweetness. I will go ahead and hand the hardman of the day award to Sam though, as he had drove from his house in Pocatello 3 hours south to the road race in Utah, come 5th in the ~85 mile road race, flipped a btch, drove 4 hours north and lapped the field in Idaho Falls! Impressive? I think so!
In less sweet news, this is almost definitely the last race I’ll ever ride with Sandy. Also, I pretty much told the team that I am going to do something else for next year, which I am really excited about, but both of these facts are really hard to swallow. This is the only team I’ve ridden with in Utah, and I have so many memories attached. All of that occuring at a Memorial Race for Allan… Definitely an emotional evening.
On the flip side, it was great to see Allan’s family again, as well as reconnecting with some friends we don’t see enough of.
Oh yeah, and on a completely unrelated topic (to anyone besides us), we bought a britney spaniel puppy on the way home.
