Michael asked for me to post for him.
He wanted to update on today's race.
He said, "just write that I raced, but not all that great..whatever."
Michael made that race and after either instigating or joining several doomed breaks, he got into a break with Scottie Weiss. They were joined by some big assed, big legged dude named Jason Snow. The three of them rolled well, but the short course meant they were always in sight, and the motivation to chase was always high back in the group.
Eventually Kenny Williams attacked the group and after three laps of powerhouse chasing he caught Michael's trio.
And off the 4 of them went, successfully holding off the field. Just.
I figured Michael would have to attack as he can't match the sprinting speed of Williams or Snow.
And sure enough, with 2 laps to go, Michael threw it all out there and went for it.
He was hoping they would look at each other long enough to let him go. But they worked together. Michael put up a fight, the crowd was cheering it all one, but he was caught with about half a lap left to go.
Jason Snow won the race and Michael, exhausted from his attempt finished a valiant 4th.
So there. He raced, he was great...whatever.
I dug it.
