This weekend I rolled to the Terrapin Twilight in Athens, Georgia. They had a sweet Off-road time trial qualifier Saturday morning for the Fat tire crit Saturday night. The time trial consisted of a six minute singe track loop. I was able to secure the top TT time of 6:37, qualifying myself for the fat tire crit. The Fat Tire crit was on the Terrapin Twilight course a few hours before the main event. The crit was 30 minutes long with 4 turns & a slight uphill on the back stretch. After the first lap of the crit I was spun out and relied on some drafting techniques to stay in contention with the group. After 30 minute spin session, I crossed the line 10th.
Sunday was round 3 of the US-CUP/S.E.R.C series in Winder, Georgia. The morning started off fairly wet with a massive rain storm rolling in mid race. The 4 lap, 31 mile race ended up becoming a mud fest, drifting in every turn. The race stayed together for the first 3 laps then attacks started on the final lap resulting in a small group of 5 riders drilling it to the finish. After a last minute surge, I ended up 4th.
