In the men's elite race the starting positions for Scott, Alex and Kailin were far back making for lots of traffic and difficulty with moving up. All the same, the three riders had decent showings with Alex in 51st, Scott 52nd and Kailin in 87th.
I would like to thank all of our sponsors for making this trip possible.
I would also like to thank the following people for helping the team: Greg Keller for hooking us up with our rental, Eric Brown, Matt Garcia, Kailin Waterman, Kelly Chang and Ariel Brown for helping in the pits
Chris Bondus and the WD-40 crew for cleaning and lubing our bikes and giving us a place out of the cold when we needed it.
Bill Nicol , Mark Abele and Julie Brothers for helping feed the team .
I would also like to that Shimano neutral support for lending me a tool to fix Ellen's bike.
I would also like to thank all the folks who cheered us on from the sidelines......it definitely makes a difference.
Last but not least I would like to thank the team for the selfless way they helped each other and myself make this trip go as smoothly as possible. Cheers until next season. Be sure and check the rock lobster facebook page for more photos of the event.
