Harrisonburg and Massanutten did a fine job at the HooHa. The courses were really great and the competition very fast. I surprised myself and won the Super D. I didn't think that I had a chance against Kelli Emmett, but home course advantage paid off. JB was second to Sid and Carp was a hot fourth. Its hard to believe that Sid can win a rocky Super D on 1.9 tires pumped up to 40 lbs, but I guess that is what it means to be a pro. The Short track was unbelievable hell. How can I be blown after 5 minutes? I used to be good at short track? It was exciting seeing JB and Sid tangle. Sid is the type of guy that you ask, "Oh you are from Australia?(since he was wearing the Australian National Jersey) and he says rudely, "No, I'm not...I'm from Tasmania" WTF, mate! It was great to see JB and Nick put him in his place in the XC. I got put in mine by Kelli and new comer Anina. But honestly, I had tons of fun and rode well. I won $215 dollars for third place in xc.
