Before the race my brother and I came up with a plan. The plan was to sit back because we didn’t believe that any of the moves would stick. We wanted to save all of our energy for the end because most likely it was going to come down to a field sprint. As the race started, the attacks came and went but nothing looked promising, so we didn’t change our plan. At nine laps to go, I started to follow my brother CJ like we had planed. It wasn’t really difficult following him through the tiny wholes, except when he went extremely close to the barrier and a rider came right into me forcing me to run over the legs on the barriers. That didn’t stop me from focusing on winning. With one to go I told him to stay up front and be ready for the serge. Coming into the final corner we were right where we needed to be, in the front. Unexpectedly, someone attacked forcing me to abandon my lead out a little early causing me to start my sprint at 250 meters. I went into the U-turn too fast and I lost two positions because I had to use my brakes. When we finally straightened up I gave it all I had and ended up with the win.
