Well that ended up being a pretty dry race after all and still not much dust. Clouds had parted over the area of the course and I only hit a little rain during the second loop and when I was loading the bike back up. The first loop was 32 miles and the first part was sandy whoops. I got an okay start, about mid pack, but dumped the bike twice in the sand. I was passed by a few bikes but was able to recover and get most back except one rider on a Suzuki who I chased to the pits. When I got to the pits I took some fuel and choked down a energy bar. I felt better on the second loop and was not passed by anyone except a team rider. I was okay with that, he was fresh from not doing the first loop. And just when I started feeling good and riding strong the finish line was on the horizon. The bike did well and i didn't get hurt and I got a 4th place finish and a trophy. Not a bad day at all.
