Alec Bob Podiums at Rock Hill
This past weekend I was in Rock Hill, SC at one of my favorite facilities on the circuit. Racing started off Friday, with sub 40 temperatures as well as a head wind down the second straight. The winds made it challenging for the elites to make it through the pro set and over the berm jump at the end of the second straight away. I ended the day with my best finish in elite so far with a 6th place finish in the semi main. For the first time this year I was only bike lengths away from making the main. On day two the winds were vice versa of Friday with a headwind down the first straight and a tailwind down the second straight. My day ended early after two hiccups in my first and third round I had too many points to advance to the semi. Sunday turned out to be the coldest of the three day with temperatures hovering around 35 degrees and misty. Since I ride in these conditions on a regular basis I wasn’t phased. I went on to win all three mains in Pro open on Sunday.
With our local track being closed due the recent snowfall and rainy forecast, I will be going to Florida this weekend to spend more on the big hill to prep for the two upcoming world cups races in early May. I’m looking forward to riding in sunny and warm conditions.
