So this last weekend i went to the Sunshine Coast to race the Rat race Dh. I went over there with Tyler. We ended up leaving on thursday afternoon. Tyler and I got to stay at his grand parents house which was awesome great food, crab fishing and right on the beach couldn’t get much better.
Friday we started first day of training. Shuttles were not provided till race day so Tyler’s grandpa offered to shuttle us. After 3 laps we meet up with Remi and Dean and got 4 more laps in. At 6pm registration opened so we went to go get out plates. It was a good first day.
Saturday training didn’t start till 2pm so we got to sleep in and pull up the crab traps. 2 o’clock came around and we headed out for practice. Tyler are i met up with Remi, Dean and Ryan Vanderhan. It was super helpful to be riding with the pros because i could get the fast lines and try to keep up with them. I think it really helped.
Sunday was race day. We got up early and arrived at the course at 9 to get practice in. I put one practice lap in because i was feeling really good that morning. My race was at 3:49pm way later then usual but i was fine. Race time came around and i was feeling awesome. Dropped in for my run feeling confident and I ended up pulling out a 1st place in the U17 expert men category. I’m stoked with the win first one for the C4 2011 race season.
After the awards we rushed to the ferry to get home. Overall it was a fun weekend of riding and crabbing see you next year Rat Race. C4 Represent.
