Race number 4 of the Portland Short Track is a wrap. It was hot hot hot. I mean seriously it was hot as hell out there. The organizers did another great job of designing the course this week. It was technical and loose. I took the hole shot in the U35 Cat 2 field which I held for no more than a quarter of a lap. Its the little things right. Below are some photos from the Elite men + Elite women's race. It's inspiring to watch these men and women race and I am looking forward to the next one.
Andrew Coe rode flawlessly in the last couple of laps leaving the rest of the field to try and chase him down.

The Elite + Cat 1 women were killing it on this loose course laying down smooth lines and showing some true grit.

I think we can all agree that Ten Speed Hero makes some of the best kits in the cycling industry.
I am sure Josh Kelley is not happy settling for third. Looking forward to seeing how this guy shreds in the next couple of races. Heal up man!

I am sorry but you can't have my peanut butter sandwich.
