Jason Lummis and Joberon attended the 2nd stop for the tailwinds series. Jason finished 4th and Joe 6th. The course was great and the resurrection of the stair climb made the race even better.

Bloomer Park XC 5 laps of fun ! Due to water on the course a week ago this race was rescheduled for this past Sunday. A few nice changes to a course, I have raced at probably 15 times, made the maze of twisty single track to dbl track transitions a little fresher. Great job Art and Bloomer crew, as well as Robert from tailwinds for a different course. The stair climb section made the race (I have not raced the stair climb at this course for what seems like 7yrs) !
I jumped the whistle at the start and sat up for a sec so everyone could catch back up, =0), ooops. The race was on as I sat 2nd wheel to Kuhn, down the sled hill and back up. Great race as Tanguy reeled us in then dropped us on his home course. Lapped traffic was not fun on this twisty course and I lost 10-15 secs to Kuhn a few times. Crashed into a lapper and had to get off the bike to re-tighten my front skewer. Battled with a Stange bro and Parmelee for 2.5 laps and just miissed out on 2nd by a less than 20secs and 3rd by 2secs. I had a few chances to try something for 3rd but just never really pulled the trigger and the sprint was weak as lapped traffic was present to th end. Thanks ERIN for water bottles on the silver platter, you did a great job as we sailed thru the Start/finish.
