It was a hot one down in Angel Fire New Mexico for the third stop of the MSC with race start temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees. However, that did not stop new club rider Stewart from taking a huge lead in the first lap of the CAT 2 19-29 race and holding on to it for a win (by several minutes!). Big props to Stew for kicking some butt at Angel fire in the sweltering heat.
Yours truly (Tim Curry) did not deal with the heat as well. At the end of the first lap i was sitting comfortably in second feeling awsome and then the heat got to me. At the beginning of lap 2 I found one of the nasty side effects of hot weather called heat exhaustion and, in turn, dropped like a rock to a finish in 12th. Guess thats what happens when you go from riding in 60-70 degrees to a race at 90 degrees.
Congrats again Stewart on the big win and photos from the race will be posted as soon as i get them!
