Unfortunately, my game was off a little now. So, I wasn't surprised to find myself stuck in the bushes after hitting a root and flying sideways over the bars. Guess I caught a little too much air. So, there I was, in the bushes on Cruddy Buddy near the alligator infested water. Helmet tangled up in some vine crap, the legs somehow stuck in the bike frame, hurt shoulder and chest, so yeah- this time- there was just no hopping back on the bike, I really couldn't get up. To my surprise, Kyler Hall (one of my teammates) saw my little crash and stopped to offer help. So, I took it. And I'm so happy he didn't end up getting passed by anyone in the meantime. I would have felt really bad if he lost a position because of me.
With the exception of being super sore, the second lap went really smooth. I was able to pass a junior towards the end and finished the race in 8th place. Even without the crashes, I don't think I could have done much better. And I'm happy with my lap times when comparing them to the women. Good bye for now and looking forward to the Santos race.
