2005 Race Results

Here are my results for 2005. I had some aggressive goals and although I did not meet them all I feel generally pretty good about my season. I ended up with over 350 hours which is about 100 more than I had in 2004. Highlights of the season were 12 Hours of Razorback, TransIowa, 24 Hours of Big Bear, Millcreek Crit, and Blossom Crit. Also really enjoyed the progress the team ( made in our team strategy and tactics. We should be ready for bigger results next year.
