Justin’s race went a little smoother (to say it mildly), racing in a field of 36 masters racers including the surprise appearance of a less than healthy Norm Thibault, who pulled triple duty as race organizer, parent and racer. Justin decided to start a little harder than Comox and led coming out of the climb. He was briefly passed going into the first sandpit, but aggressively shouldered past his challenger in the sand corner and continued to keep his competition behind him for his 7 lap, 47 minute victory. The nearest competitor (Brian Griffin/Team Alliance) finished over 2 minutes behind him. For his efforts he was rewarded with a promotion to the expert category. Looks like his days at the front of the pack are over for now. Proud but tired Papa at the end of the race
Overall fantastic day with the family. Chase loved playing in the fall leaves. We’re looking forward to next weekend’s race in Duncan. Gotta love Island cross racing.
