So I wanted to do something slightly different to share the experience of racing a World Cup with you, but not just the racing, the whole day of the race, a bit of the behind the scenes. I took photos from the start of the day until the end.
This weekend in Cairns I had a career best Elite World Cup finish with 58th finishing on the lead lap. I was called up 84th and worked my way up from the start. On the 5th lap I had to change my rear wheel in the tech zone when I burped my tire and lost most of the air. I made it as high as 50th during the race. I learned a lot and can’t wait for the next opportunity to race a world cup and improve in some key areas.
Now, let me take you through the day of racing in the jungle!
Massive thanks to Norco Bicycles for the bike and the help so far this season. I have had the best start ever and can’t wait to keep it rolling. Thanks to all the Norco Factory Team sponsors as well, your help makes our program possible!
