Troy's Last Official Race of the Year—2 California State Championships!!!!
Troy wins Cal State 10 and under Series State Championship and 4th in U.S.
by James Sladeck
I was nervous the morning of the race because I knew that he had to win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place to
be the state champion. I knew he could win the race but I kept thinking he may get a flat tire,
break a chain, crash or something like that. Fortunately nothing bad happened. Off the line
and through the first mile he out-pedaled all of his competition and by the time he neared the
finish line he was the winner by a long shot.
We had a great year----5 championships in all and we're excited about next year, especially the
national championships in cross country and downhill. Who knows, maybe we can make a world cup
race or two????
Thanks to everyone who reads all of my emails and wishing him all of the best luck for the
