2007 Racing Recap! Boy What a Year!
Well it's been a long year, but a very rewarding one for me. For one of the first times in my life I set some tuff goals and was able to hit my targets. From weight loss, to racing it has been fun to see and track my progress. 2 of the rewards I had know Idea I would stumble upon but have been the best rewards of them all, I am in the best shape of my life! And I have had a positive influence on the folks that are close to me to try and lose weight, or improve their performance. -- I actually feel like a role model! Cool! I raced in 28 events total this year and man am I beat up! Here is a Macro level view of how I did this year on the MTB and CX race scene. In the USAC MTB CX series I took 2nd overall for Sport Men 30-34. In the Tailwind TT series I took 2nd overall in Sport Men 30-34, and Sport /Beg Single speed! I finished 7th out of 105 racers at the ICEMAN in Sport Men 30-34. I took 6th overall in the Tailwind USAC Cyclocross series and stood upon the top 5 podium 2 times. And at the USAC Michigan CX State Championship Race, I took home the bronze state champ medal for C-Men 34 and under. I am taking a break for a week or 2 and then the training process will begin. Check back in a few weeks to see what my goals for 2008 will be. No that I have a taste for the podium at a higher level of racing, I want it that much more...CD
