Finishing first in a state and on a course I thought I never stood a chance at winning on. I was given some hope last year when I took 3rd, still 5+ minutes off the lead time. This year was total roll reversal as I won by 8+ minutes. The fastest overall expert time. One of the biggest leads I've EVER won by. 1600ft of climbing per lap and 3 and a half laps for over 5600ft of climbing in 21+ miles. Looks like I'll be stumbling into the top 3 overall for 2009.

The most difficult course on the " Intermountain Cup "series Snowbird ski resort host the steepest hill climb races on and off road. Avoided by many in the series with it's tedious climbs and trecherous descents. Next weekend is the state championships I hope to do as well.... http://intermountaincup.com/2009Race/SnowbirdResults09.pdf

The 2008 weekly training series enters mid season and as the temperature heat up the competition cools down. Starting the season surviving in the A's has begun to reverse it's polarities as I get strong in because the breaks but not enough to dominate the finish,...yet.
