The Peck family all got out to race the 26 mile MTB event this past Sunday, with cool cloudy conditions making for fast racing without any concerns of overheating. Anna and I did not make the podium, although I came close with a 4th place finish in the men’s 50-59 field of over one hundred riders. Heather had a solid 3rd place in her comeback to racing after suffering a broken wrist in cyclocross last fall.
Justin put in a top performance with 3rd in the elite men’s race, battling with some pros who had also raced the day before in the first event of the Lifetime Grand Prix series. He narrowly missed finishing 2nd thanks sliding wide in the gravel on one of the final corners. A great podium picture is below!
