Squash Blossom: The High Desert Screamer!

This race was way fun because we got Brad, Kimball, and Jonny to come along! We rode up Friday night and stayed at a sleazy Super 8, where some random Indian guy walked into Kimball’s room at 3 in the morning, and then raced Saturday morning!
Here are the random highlights of the short, but fun trip:

The medals they gave you for winning!
The boys before the race. Such a nice day out! Couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Michael in the hotel parking lot. (Notice our rental car since someone decided to slam into the Honda!)

Jonny got third place in his category! Right after the race with the whole crew!

The boys at the starting line.

Mike at the starting line checking his wheel. He rode up the road with the “cream of the crop” in his category. He was flying!!

Overall it was such a beautiful day and a VERY fun coarse. A favorite of Mike’s. I liked it because after doing Horny Toad, it seemed so much easier and I was a lot more confident ont he technical parts. I was so proud of Brad cause his cassette screwed up, but he fixed it and went on and finished the race. Michael got seventh which was two steps up from last year (considering all the people ahead of him were from up north). I got second overall and first in my category! P.S. It felt good to beat the girl at Cedro who beat me there and Santa Fe. 🙂
