Ontario Cup #5
|On the start line getting ready.|
That night we camped at Albion Hills which was great since I was only a couple of minutes from the race venue. It did rain while we were camping but everyone stayed dry. I woke up on race morning to the sun shining and I knew that it was going to be a great day for racing. It did turn out to be a great day but a very hot one. The race went off at 1:30 and I fought for first place into the first corner. Once we all got onto the good double track I was sitting second place but I had a competitor try to pass and he hit my handle bar and we both went down hard. I got some road rash on my leg (more like dirt rash) and lost one of my race bottles. I quickly got back on the bike and was on my way down the race course.
