And this is the showdown…

December 2, 2007

I barely pulled off the win yesterday at the AGSI National XC Champs in Guelph over teammate Eric Gillis.  I seriously thought I was going to finish second when Gillis and I got to the bottom of the hill with 200m to go.  He has been stronger on the hills this fall than myself but I decided I wasn’t going out without a fight.  So I pushed hard halfway up the hill and got a small lead that I was able to hold onto until the finish line.  Speed River went 1,2,4,5,13 to claim the team title. 

Flotrack.com has a video of the race and many interviews up

My friend was filming the race and captured this… enjoy

    If you compare the video with the post pics you can figure out who it was.
