My awesome 29er. I am no longer skeptical about big wheels. This bike rocks.
I ended up winning, which was a big surprise considering how poorly I was riding at the start. Also, during the race, the end of the front derailleur cable began to rub against my tire. It took me forever to figure out what it was, and once I did, I did not want to stop and waste time bending it. My time compared to all Cat.1's was actually pretty great and I got a decent amount of money for winning. It is great seeing more juniors racing Cat.1; hopefully it says something about the growth of our sport.
Tyler, me and Ryan.
