    Practice day was awesome. However the overnight rain made Cat2/3 practice on Friday morning very sketch. It was much better by my run at 9:45 but it is a VERY different course wet vs dry. I snapped a few pictures...

    I'm the third guy in the pic.

    I took fourth.

    Please tell me someone has video of me getting on the podium.

    I ERUPTED when my name was called!!!!

    I am so on a high from this. For the last 12 years or so, I have been trying to have a result like this.

    To do it at the national championships, for me was absolutley AMAZING!!!!!

    For everyone that came up to me and congradulated me and said something about my celebration, I thank you so much. This is something I have worked for for a long time.

    I still can't believe it. l am so happy.

    For all the SE racers I have been racing with, I thank you so much for all of your support and friendship.

    I DID IT!!!!! I GOT ON THE PODIUM!!!!!!

    The crew at Dirt Passion would like to thank everybody for their support over the weekend. The entire crew had an absolute blast!

    Stay tuned for the short film..... written and directed by each of YOU, THE RIDERS! All we did was document it. Should be ready in a few weeks.

    I watched nik crash. I was litterally scared he might have died... that man needs a medal for gnarliest crash Ever! Very glad he is not hurt worse. But on a more comforting note, huge thanks to dirt passion for all the hard work this week! You guys are gonna be the reason downhill gets put on the map In the public eye. Much apreesh.

    What a great weekend. Super fun dry practice on Thursday, amazing muddy race run at 9:16am on Friday morning, and an awesome time in the rock garden on Sunday.

    Still haven't seen any pictures of me yet (#369 - Cat 2, 25-29), so if anyone has any, let me know. Also, picture of the podium would be awesome.

    Thanks for the photo Rob. Just got home. Wish I didn't wreck during my race. I caught that guy in front of me twice:think:

    Also a big thanks to the Florida Crew for giving me a place to hang. Had a blast.

    Just wanted to say big ups to Beech Mtn for putting on another great event yet again. Certainly wish the weather was moar dry, as I think the Pro course would be the mutts nutz in dry/tacky conditions (well that and me not sucking at riding bicycles).

    Special props to the photogs as well, as we all love self-aggrandizing pix of ourselves :thumb:

    Looking forward to the August race!

    Me too! Even with the weekend and four days of running around, I am ready for more. Need to find another fast forward button.
