What a great race at Mooch madness 2015 !! And for me this was one that I will definately remember for a while.. First off we had a pretty large group,, 23 riders. Then as many of you know,, especially in the 40-49 group every once in a while a local pro joins us,, Roger,, Greg,, etc.. and I am totally ok with that as it mixes things up.  At the start of our race Nick Morell I believe jumped out front and I followed. Close behind me was Greg and then I believe Greg.. LOL and then I believe Victor..

Anyways,, Greg #1 passed me up within a few minutes and I tried to ride his wheel best I could.. This ended up with both of us passing Nick which put me in 2nd place. soon there after,, somewhere Greg #2 ( Cosgrove ) passed me.. Within a short while I lost sight of both Greg's.. Maybe 25 minutes in.. At this point the race for me is really battling for 3rd And on my wheel is Victor.. And when I say on my wheel I meen when I turned to look in my rear view my helmet hit his.. Thats close !  we rubber banded back and forth a few times.. SUPER rocky course and on the techy flats Victor would either close the gap or pass me and on the climbs and that long fast decent I would move away from him.  We did this for all 3 laps and towards the end of the last lap just when I thought he was out of my rear view I see the blue jersey comin.. Was like a running from jason in Friday the 13th.. LOL.. Anyways by this point we were going around the water hole just after the log decent and I spotted him.. I knew we were 5 minutes or so to the end and so in that amount of time everything and anything could happen.. Its like eternity.. AND we had a mix of everything to go.. Fire road,, techy climb, and a hill climb to the finish.. I put everything I had into my legs.. Killed my bottle and adjusted accordngly.. This was gonna be close..   I rounded the parking lot,, through the bystanders and Victor had made some time up.. Close enough where I could read his shirt.. NOT GOOD.. I got out of the saddle.. Yeah I did and if anyone knows me,, I never do that !!!!  well,, it paid off.. Snagged 3rd by 15 seconds..  Now its time for recovery.. Those rocks put a beatin on me...
