After having a few bad spills out in the Tulsa Tough and things not going the way, I would have liked them to, it was time to focus! I knew coming off of the hard week of racing that CashCall Mortgage and I were going to race hard.
Last year I raced San Pedro Grand Prix as a category 3 rider and managed to walk away with the win from a long sprint from the last corner. But I knew that this race was going to be totally different this year.
The team and I got ready for the usual warm up and team discussion on race strategy. There were a few executions for the win but we were all set on racing hard.
The race was underway and attacks came quickly. Every breakaway Team CashCall Mortgage had at least 2 riders in it. Then, one finally one stuck with a group of 10. The odds were great, but why not
stack the break if we can. Devan Dunn launched a solo attack and Brian McCullough dropped back to bring him up. Once they came up to the back of the break I knew it was over.
We rode the last 10 laps together until 2 to go when Devan and Brian attacked up the toughest section and were off for a lap and a half. It was thefinal lap, bells ringing, and fans were cheering. In what seemed was going to be another full podium of CashCall Mortgage riders, but the other riders in the group didn’t want to let that happen.
