2006 24hr Solo Mtn Bike World Championship Photos
first off i have to thank matthew noell for his amazing support.. he was the only one in my pit, so he did everything; kept the bikes in race shape, fed me, cleaned me, helped me change cloths, kept track of what i was consuming, what place i was in and how fast i was going. the guy is amazing support but an even better friend. there was one point were i was starting to get down on myself, thinking i just wasn’t riding well enough. the next time through the pit matthew happened to give me a pep talk. he told me how well i was riding, how consistant i was and how much of a bad ass he thought i was. i didn’t tell him this but the next few laps i was filled with the confidence he had just given me… priceless.
thank you matthew!
as we line up for the lemans start they introduce each solo racer one at a time – this is australian craig gordon (cannondale) the eventual winner – hopefully he’s out of the hospital by now!
