After having ridden the Bradbury 12 in 2014 and winding up with a destroyed bike, numb hands, and a poor showing, I was not exactly thrilled about trying to ride it again. But, after doing better than I expected in a MTN endurance race in July at Carrabassett, I was curious to see how I would do at Bradbury. I rode there a couple times this summer on my own and with the help of the newer Kona Hei Hei 29er which I now ride, I was able to handle, and even really enjoy many of the obstacles that had previously given me only frustration and pain.

I decided to race the Masters 35+ for the season and realized I was seeded about last for both days. Nothing to lose, only to go forward!
