So the entire family came out to freeze in the wind - swept county park. I started on the front row due to a super quick trigger finger at 1:00 a.m. back in September. It was great hitting Mt. Krumpet in the top 5 to avoid what was never ending carnage. After never successfully descending Krumpet during my warmup I hit the hill with a full head of steam on the first lap. Fortunately I picked a good line for each of five laps and never faulted. I may not have been the fastest heading down the hill but I stayed on my bike, which was worth a lot. I waited around for results but after an hour they were not in sight and I was hungry for leftovers. Ended out nearly missing out on a top 10 but snagged 11th, which I was very happy with.
Here are a few pics and a video from today.
