Kirkland Criterium

Posted: Category: Racing 4 Comments

Great race, just wished I had been in better shape for it :-)

I had 2 close calls… one of them is here-

Thanks to Bill Cooper from Second Ascent for the video.

The other happend on the same corner and a Wines guy went down RIGHT in front of me. Luckily I was able to ride over the top of him (sorry!) and ended up in the bar’s eating area on the side walk.

Great crowd, perfect course and big props to my teammates for laying the smack down. Always in the action always pushing the pace and making everyone hurt Greg walked away with second third place and we put 2 or 3 more in the top 10. Brad hit the pavement (with his GOOD wheels!)with a lap to go in perfect position, feel pretty bad for him. Hell win LWV3 though, that’s all I’m sayin’

Great job to the suppoprting shop Ubrdo. Those guys were fantastic!

  • uBRDO is a great shop. Scotty is the best.

    Brad was he only guy to hit the deck in corner one all night and he didn’t even do it because it got narrow, but because he clipped a pedal. He did it real smart though – he tucked into a ball and people got around him nice and easy. Corner 2 was trouble all night – glad to hear nobody got hurt there too bad.

  • I thought corner 1 was going to be the worst but it was corner that got the best of a lot of us. I over-cooked it twice and when Piethman dodged a guy who blew his front tire I almost road straight through him. Will have to remember that for next year.

    You need to undisguise yourself someday. Come up and say high next time!
