Monday....After Race Weekend................

That's right we spent the day in Lexington NC for a crit race. Cody raced 1 of these last year in the juniors class and didn't do to great but he had fun. This year he decided he wanted to start racing these instead of mountain bikes, so we got him the new bike and Saturday was the start.

Lexington NC is the self proclaimed bar-be-que capital of NC. They have these little pig statues all over downtown, some painted all kinds of colors and some in front of restaurants, they write the specials of the day on them, or welcome cyclist. The bar-be-que smelled really good too, and no we didn't try any.

Now for the race, Cody and Austin raced the cat4/5 class, they had 74 people in it. It was the biggest class of the day! I told Cody to line up towards the outside and hang on! He did really great to, he ended up 48th! Which is not to shabby considering it was his first race of that size, he is 15 and most of the guys in his race are at least in there late 20's early 30's. I was proud for sure.

As you can see it was a big field, they where strung out quit a bit behind the pace car. I think we are going to try to go to Asheville this weekend for another race. We can stay at the campground for 20 dollars and he will race early Sunday am so it might work. At least I am hoping it will.

Of course we have a shot of the results.
