It seems our 35+ pre-race meetings spend a lot of time talking about Charon, but that doesn’t do justice to how stacked these fields are. As everyone knows who does them, the 35+ races often average the same or higher speed then the pro races. It was business as usual at Chuck Pontius yesterday in the 35+ as we just wanted to make the race as hard as possible and keep everyone digging. This not only plays in our favor but also make’s the Surf City guys stay busy. Hey, when you have a finisher sprinting as fast as their Big Guy those are the dues you pay and they were nearly up to it again.
After numerous tries by our team, and a crazy fast race, we were able to open up a good opportunity for me to take a chance at the end and this time it paid off. I had a couple strong guys like Derryl Halpern helping in the move and when John Wike came across I didn’t want to take him to the line so I had to give it a shot. Another great 35+ race.
