Also, congrats to n7heven for the championship and getting promoted to expert! Too fast after only one full year of racing!
Thanks bro, but I'm going to protest...
There's no way I want to race Expert in my second year, will be 43 years old, and will be on a 7 year old bike...
In all fairness and honesty, I'm really proud of what I accomplished in 2012, but there was a whole bunch of guys
faster than me, that didn't compete the whole season; and who'd have put me farther back in points if they had.
Mechanical issues, crashes, injuries, family obligations, etc, kept several key competitors out of the points to challenge my placement in the four races that I compete in.
