Fortunately I had a good 2nd row starting position in the Masters 3/4 race, unfortunately I didn't take advantage of it due to getting rear ended on the start line and having to sort out the rear brake just 50 meters from the line. The field was relatively small compared to some races so I was able to get back and through the field by the end of the first lap and then start hunting down the top 10. With the course gradually melting as the laps went by, I was able to gradually reel people in and it was beneficial to have raced the course last year so I at least knew the decent lines to take (whether I executed them is a different matter!)

By the end of the race I had got to 3rd so made the podium and with the guys in 1st and 2nd not being from Maryland, I was State Champion for Masters 3/4.
