Troy Wins Huge, His Best Raceday Ever---Two 1st Place Wins!
He's Now Qualified For The U.S. Championships in Mammoth
By Jim Sladeck
Good start, no crashes, good training and prep = a perfect race. Troy had his best racing day
ever today and he won his class and even beat every racer through age 14 on the short
course (except one 12 year old). His new bike is lighter and faster than ever before, he's
learned to ride well in "clipless" pedals and most importantly has the desire to win on the race
He is finally able to use all of his gears on his mountain bike which lets him go much faster on
high speed courses. When he came across the finish line, there wasn't a another racer in sight
from his class. After resting for an hour and a half, we decided to do the first "long" course
which was approx. 8 miles in the middle of the day. It took Troy an hour and a half to complete
and he was the only one under 10 years old to make it so he was awarded another 1st place medal.
Special thanks to The Path in Tustin
