Team Bikeman - Race Reports

There were 23 starters in the C group and right out of the gate there was a nasty crash by one of the series leaders that left him with a broken fork and fortunately just a few bumps and scrapes. Bikeman was represented by Vince Jones, Warren Worsley, Troy Nye and me. After the first lap I was in the top spot going in to the barriers and got passed by Troy and the series leader. The three of us traded position while gapping the rest of the field by a large margin. With just about four laps to go I started to pull away a bit. This course is notorious for goatheads and about the time I had my largest lead my back tire started to go flat. I hung on to reach the start/finish with 3 laps to go and stopped to get some air as Troy kept the pressure on the race leader. I got rolling again, not knowing how many spots I had lost and rode as hard as I could to regain position. I had to stop two more times to air up before the race was over, but was able to finish 5th. Troy stayed with the race leader and was just edged out to take second place. Vince finished 15th and Warren hung on through a rough day to finish 16th.
