Xterra Southwest Regional Champion!

Right after I started racing in 2006 and came across Xterra this has been on my goals. It took me 3 seasons to do it but I finally got it. I am the Southwest Regional Champion in the 30-34 AG. I can't wait to get my jersey at the awards/pre-race dinner in Tahoe!

Here's a link to an article about the regional champions and another to a PDF with all the winners.

Biggups to Brian & Erik for also bringing home their titles.

This week has been creeping by. I can't wait for the weekend. I am finally going to get out and race again. On Sunday I will be heading up to Big Bear to race in the California State Championship XC mountain bike race. It's two weeks out from Nationals and at a similar altitude so I will be some good prep and a chance to see where my riding is at. There will definitely be some stiff competition. The plan is to just go for it and see how long I can hold. Hopefully I can just jump on the wheels of the fast guys a go has hard as I can for as long as I can... hopefully that's the finish line! The course is 24 miles with 3300 ft. of climbing. It's going to hurt!

24 miles and 3300 feet of climbing? That is like 2 percent grade man! Glad they are taking the downhills out of that course.

That jersey is a sweet trophy.
