Toad Wrap-Up

Toad Wrap-Up

Racing, chocolate milk, beer, and friends. That pretty much sums up my experience during the 10 days of battling in the 4/5s in the Tour of America’s Dairyland. I was able to enjoy one more season mixing it up as a 4/5 and getting to race early in the morning which will be heavily missed in the future. After some intense reconnaissance of my competitors who managed to pre-register I narrowed my competition down to a couple of riders I was to race against for the overall (not many racers were doing the entire series). One of these riders was a sprinter out of Indiana, who I would become good friends with during the series, and kept the overall rivalry very friendly. Justin (Indiana rider) and I went back and forth trading the overall points during the first few days until Schlitz Park and Road America. The climbs on these courses separated our skills and allowed me to gap the points lead. I continued to hold the lead through the rest of the series, while keeping all of my skin and drinking copious amounts of beer with friends (due to my vacation status). I ended up clinching the series at the Downer Classic, thus enabling me to partake in contributing to the Super Prime! During the week I was able to nab 3 race wins, and podium 7 of the 10 days of racing. My race goals for the year were met, and now I hope to compete/work with Jadon in the Cat 3s. Thank you for all the support and media coverage of the event (Jadon & Ray for the lucky pins, Bryan & Darren for the wonderful photos and video coverage, and Nick & Bill for making the team happen). Also much thanks to a newer team member, Robert Berry, and veteran members Matt Goelzer and Mike Kren for amazing help on key stages! I hope you were all able to enjoy some cheese and wine at last week’s true recovery ride, and see you at the state time trial this weekend.
