USGP Weekend in Bend

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. 

A bear hug from a good friend. Thanks Amanda for making my weekend even sweeter.

Great people, big smiles.

Jade, Evelyn and myself, all smiles
