James bailey rocked the house in B's with a 7th in XC. That's awesome too because James is in his first year of medical school and doesn't have the time to train like he wants to. Me? I was head USAC official for our event. Everything went smoothly until time for 4X Saturday. We just finished with STX and started 4X qualifying and then the clouds let loose. We were unable to get 4X in on Saturday so a quick call to USAC HQ in Colorado for advice had me postponing 4X until after XC on Sunday. After the event was over we did have a hiccup when it came to enetering results. We made a few mistakes that were quickly brought to our attention Tuesday but everyone was very forgiving.
Here are a few pics from Brevard's facebox and Union's blog. Brian Sheedy, the coach of Brevard, brought a big team up from NC and Peter Haile, the awesome new coach from Union, brought his army from the KY. I didn't get to be a great host due to being the head official at our race but I love seeing all the guys and gals from the SECCC every weekend in the fall because we are like a very large family. I love collegiate racing!
I can't wait until our race comes to town but I also can't wait until it's over. There's so much work involved hosting a race that you are plumb worn out by the time it's over. The look on all the teams faces while their here and while they're competing makes it all worth while though. I'm very proud to be a part of USAC SECCC racing.
