Eli and I had a friendly rivalry going, but he was determined not to let me pass. Eventually he let me go around and I finished in first.
Mr. Dave made really cool trophies for all of the winners out of old sprockets that had been on bikes he owned at one time. Plus, for winning my class, I also got a case of beer. (Which really means Mom and Dad got a case of beer--haha!)
My dad also made the podium and took home a trophy for placing third in the 40+ class.
The SSIC was just a really fun race and I hope a lot more people will come out for it next year!!
