Long week...

Well Speedweek has finally come to an end. It was a long week but a successful week for the team. Hoppy came through huge and had a hand full of top 5's that earned him a 3rd place overall. The team scraped together enough points as well to finish 3rd overall in the team classification as well. The team rode great with a few break out rides from Matt Winstead and Bennett as well.. The downside of the week is we did have a ton of bad luck as well. We must of had over 10 flats, a handful of broken carbon wheels, a couple broken shifters, and 1 smashed frame to top it off. Richy Rich had the worst of it smashing into a rider that fell off his bike. This smashed his bike and in the process smashed his elbow as well. A big loss for the team as he will be out 4 weeks.. but knowing his crazy ass he will be riding the trainer for 4 hours a day no handed to stay in shape. Heal quick Rich!


My week was pretty rough as I did not come off my injury as well as I hoped. It started acting up mid week again and the legs just wouldn't go fast enough. Let alone I could not stay away from crashes.. although I never hit the deck I had some very close calls and seem to get stuck in almost every crash. I tried to survive all the races and use them as a fitness booster which I think I was successful at. The only issue now is my leg does not feel very healthy and I am back to the doc Monday for a check up.


Here are some pics of our broke down gear... I am off this weekend as I am off to Vegas for my bachelor party...:-) can't wait for that and looking forward to some much needed R&R time...
till next time,

Carbon vs Chainring is a bad match for Carbon

poor $Rich$--at least he's got tegaderm on the one elbow, that will be healed in no time. but the other elbow may take a bit longer.
