Well, today was an AWESOME racing day! It was my first State Championship race and we had a perfect day to ride! The first picture is all of us at the start line. They started our group and I drafted going up the first hill but I felt too good and just decided to take off. I heard one of the boys tell his teammate "he's coming!!!" So, I did and never looked back! I came through the first lap in 1st place and never slowed down! There were two hills, two sharp turns and a sprint finish! It was sooo fun but I think it helped getting a great bike fit before my race! Thank you again Ryan...you totally rock! I felt like I could have ridden all day! Thanks to my coach, Rob Green, who gave me the perfect workouts to get me really strong! Coach, I will keep working hard for you...you are AWESOME! Whoa...check me out in my new State Champion's jersey! It is sweet...I think I might sleep in it tonight. My mom said it was OK! Rad Racing Rocks!!!
