Back in PerthApril 14, 2009
I have just arrived back in Perth this morning. My trip to the 1st world cup in South Africa was pretty successful i feel. I had a good time riding over there and it was awesome to be back together with my team. Sean and Jacy did a great job putting the new bikes together for this season and i was stoked with how my bike was riding. The track was pretty easy to ride, there wasn't a lot of line choice so it was pretty much just working on speed. There was also a huge flat pedally section in the middle of the course so i wasn't too confident about getting a solid result as i am not the strongest pedaller out there.
I qualified in 8th which i was happy about, i knew i could go faster in the final and my race run went really well. I felt like i rode strong and put down a solid time that i was pleased with. I ended up 4th in the final and i am really pleased with that on that track. Its a good result to start the season with and i am looking forward to building on that as the season goes on.
I only have a quick stay at home as i am getting back on the plane tomorrow and flying to America for the sea otter classic this weekend, i am looking forward to being there and racing again and hopefully i can get a better result in the sea otter dh than i have in the past few years. wish me luck.
