Randy Hits Southridge!

Well after one hell of a week dealing with waterline breaks in the slab of our house I headed out Friday night to hit round #3 of the Fontucky winter series. Got there a lot later than expected but no biggie, got set up and tried to hydrate (Coors) for the race on Saturday. I talked with the Fuzz the week before and he was headed out to get a little training in for the US cup and drop off some WAY COOL stuff from SIGMA SPORT and Amino Vital!
Saturday morning was a little hectic with Registration and stuff very good turnouts for all three disciplines. Fuzz rolled in we shot the shit and it was time to get the kit on and get warmed up. We had 16 guys on the start for my class and quite a few from week one, we ended up merging with the group in front of us so I was now at the back for the start which is cool for me because its better to pass than to be passed I always say.
So off the start I just got into a pace that I could handle and passed a few guys before the paved road climb, turned off to the single track climb (techy) and was cruising along and a guys falls in a rocky steep climb section and off to walk I go! so I get passed by three guys I passed earlier and get back going pass a couple back and some more climbing.
Me and one guy that I battled with at round one (he beat me) were going at it again, and threw out lap #1 we passed each other five time with him getting the edge again. Lap two im thinking I have to be close to him at the last fire road climb and I can beat him. Lap two I have a few misques and had to walk a couple technical sections and now I cant see him but just tell myself you can catch him. get to the last climb and he's half way up so I go as hard as I can and twenty yards from the top I get him and he says "shit you again" bomb the downhill to the drainage road and pushing as hard as I can and I hear someone on my tail and I'm like NO ******* WAY is he catching me! but lucky for me it was a pro guy so I stuck on his wheel as long as I could and beat the guy by 15 seconds or so.
Very fun weekend felt better than round one but the result isn't were I want it to be. I ended up 12th out 16 this week only one better than last week but had a lot of fun and stayed on two wheels this round.
Thanks again to all of our team sponsors! Amino Vital, Kenda Tires, Sigma Sport, Hydrapak, KMC chain, Novatec wheels,. they make it possible for me to go racing.
Round 4 coming next week till then I'll talk at ya later Captn.
P.s. sorry its a week late just been super busy.
