The USGP in Bend, the second weekend of December, marked my last weekend of racing for the season. 2012 was a great year, I learned a lot, developed as a rider and achieved many of the goals I had set for myself.
My last race was a great one. Everything fell into place and I felt like I was racing "like I knew I could". It was a bitter sweet end to a brilliant year.
The emotions I felt after crossing the line were overwhelming and instead of trying to articulate them a month removed, I'll let a few images do the talking.
