    #226 round 4 report

    So, still don't have Internet out here in the VT woods, so I'll be very breif on my iPhone. I entered the weekend on the pole in all three races, and points leader in all three...and then as racing does, I was humbled. Im certainly not unhappy with all the results, but the faster laptimes and W's have once again eluded me. Cliff notes: gtl, DNF Lwgp, 3rd Lwsb, 2nd

    Gtl: DNF, washed the front in t1 after hitting "the bump" on the brakes. Smacked my head pretty good, barrel rolled half a dozen times, and jacked up my ankle. I was leading and having a great battle with the quick #900 Jane Kennedy. This really bummed me out and kinda stuck in my head all weekend. Out lap of 1:23 and best lap of 1:21.3

    Lwgp: got myself and the bike fixed up in time...I was off my pace, jane checked out, bill cool squeezed by, and i barely held off #276 Shane Lewis for 3rd place. A red flag saved me from gassing out. No crazy laptimes. Overall, I was happy to still bounce back and podium, and I really needed a beer.

    Lwsb: didn't get as good of a launch this time, and entered t1 in 3rd. I can't remember the pass, but I was able to get on #900's tail once again, chasing her till the end for 2nd place. I realized after the race Lou peck was right on my tail...I caught a glimpse of his wheel a few times, but I'm glad I didn't look back to discover how persistent he was being! He was knocking on that door for sure!

    Ends up I had a couple torn ligaments in my ankle from my asphalt surfing, and a sprained wrist. No wonder I was screaming in pain in my helmet the last two races!! I'll be licking those wounds till we meet again in August!

    Loved hanging out with all the LRRS family, it's an awesome experience every time . Thanks to my wife (aka nurse Jen), and team Low Down Racing, for all of the support and laughs. Also have to thank Dunlop tires, Street and Comp, and Land Air VT for their support of my racing endeavors!

    I saw you tumbling outside T1 on the way by, glad it wasn't worse. 2 podiums after that is impressive (please don't post pics of your ankle).

    Shane has gotten faster quick, I used to be able to dice with him .

    And where did Jane Kennedy come from? There are lots of new fast AM's to contend with.

    Jane raced when I was on my EX500 2 years ago. She was quick back then too.

    Ha! Yeah, we BOTH offed in the GTL.

    It was great battling with you in SB Brett. Your ankle didn't slow you down too much, and you maintained a good pace through that whole race. I was trying my best, but you weren't giving anything away...and after we both went down in the GTL, I wasn't about to do anything silly. That was probably the most fun race of the season for me. Little did I know Shane Lewis was right on my tail. I heard his exhaust a few times, but didn't know he was soooooo close the whole race. Great fun. Looking forward to the next round. Hope you're pretty well healed up by then.

    Congrats on getting back on and coming up twice on the podium. That foot looked like it really hurt. I'll bet downshifts hurt like hell. (assuming you run GP shift)

    Good job man. That ankle was looking like a grapefruit. An ugly one with toes.

    I don't wanna be unique, I want white plates. I just lack the mental fortitude to step it up.
