Well, I am still in shock about the whole event, it was a crazy and unbelievable experience. Day 5 was similar to day 4, but there was only a little bit of rain. I was so excited that it was almost over I was doing wheelies wherever I could! There was people standing on the back roads handing out Sunflowers and cheering for wheelies. High fiving the kids, while on a 5th gear sit down wheelie gets a little sketchy, but its well worth it, they loved it. Day 6 was the final moto, they broke the C3 class into two motos, a slower one, and a faster one. They put me in the faster one and I was up against some heavy Euro competition. I got a crappy 12th place start and started working my way back up. I was able to get up to fourth place by about the 3rd or 4th lap, it was a 7 lap moto. The front three guys were hauling and were way out from, so I pretty much settled into a groove in 4th. I am happy with the result. As far as overall goes, I ended up 10th place in the C3, was only 3 or 4 minutes out of a gold medal. I am pumped with a silver medal since it was my first Six Days. I dropped no trail points, which was gnarly because of how gnarly the race was. Jeff Fredette said it was one of the top 5 hardest Six Days he has ever done.
At the beginning of Six Days I didn't know how to ride mud and slop, I do now. I learned a ton here from all the experienced riders that attend the event, these dudes are gnarly. It has been an experience of a lifetime, which has made me tougher, and taught me a lot. I appreciate all of your support, thanks for everything. You guys are the best,
