We Are Not Talking Struggles, Yet…

While there were some names missing from top 5’s or even top 10’s, we are not going to start talking struggles just quite yet. On a SX track that proved to be more of a holeshot contest—the lap times were so similar—all it took was a small misstep to find yourself buried in the back in no man’s land. Heck, one of the fastest laps of the SX portion came from Jayden Clough in traffic fighting for a top 10. We take this party to the moto track next which should give us a better look as to how the competition is stacking up on more typical conditions.

We met Jeff sleeping in a tent down the street from Loretta Lynn's... with his computer. At that point, we knew he would fit in with us. Then, he then drank all the white claw flavors none of us liked, and that's when we knew it was meant to be. Jeff officially became part of the crew.
We're terrible at asking questions, so we're not exactly sure what Jeff does for a living, but he loves petting his cats and dog, growing his beard, and living in a cornfield in Michigan. Jeff also likes to wear cycling glasses while driving his car and using his cameras. We like Jeff.
