Worlds was a tough one... super tight course where staying at the front was a must. Got a good start but got stuck in a crash literally 100 ft off the start line.. Great start! I was thrown back in at the back and busted my balls to get back into the top 40 before the splits happened. I sat pretty comfy in the top 30 and just waiting till the end.. and hearing the bell with 1 lap to go i was bombing the outside about 12th wheel when a huge crash in front of me made me come to almost a complete stop... I tried to get the machine rolling but was in a monster gear and basically had to do a standard start that blew my legs to bits... a couple of teammates passed me with about a halflap to go and ended up 15th which leaves me to believe top 10 would have been achievable... oh well.. i never really got the machine rolling again and finished way back.. Kinda frustrating but thats racing. Will post more when my hangover goes away.. have some great stories and even better photos!
