I said that yesterday was going to be a fistfight and I pretty sure that I am walking away with a bloody nose.
But more important is the performance of the young man we call the Rocket.
pre ride. At first James was not sure of what he was riding not a big fan of change or something new.
Picking and choosing when he could ride and do as he calls Weenie-Walk, we finished the lap in close to 35 minutes.
After a long afternoon of Lego's Basketball and a team dinner I was a bit worried how the boy would ride being a nice o'clock race and we did not make it to bed until after eleven.
including his new shorts... first ever new chamois in the past always had hand-me-downs.
Off the line he was climbing hard and before the single track rubbed a wheel and tipped over,, I had to help him back up and he took off like a ROCKET.. Up the climb and across into the back side single track... every time we saw him crossing the ski hill he was all smiles and riding strong.
He finished with a sprint and came in sixth place,, and said that he had fun... That all makes one happy dad..
When it was my turn I was as ready as I thought that I could be, Called up #1 with the Bavers next,,,standing on the line looking up at the sand pit that was going to be our start. Things started well I took the hole shot as Brendan came around before the single followed by Hwood and Bavers. Top of the climb Owen came around flying and I could not match and then again before hitting the backside single passed again. At this point I have all but completely blown up and was just holding on by a thread. Going into lap 2
Lessons learned and only a minute to one and a half out of where I wanted to be.
Now I have some time to get my self right and ready for the climbing session that will be up in Duluth at Lester Park..
Again I can be more Proud of Young James Rocky!! Way to be Black and White.
