Knocking heads at Nationals; the Geoff Kabush diary

Since last race report I have been racing a bit, but with kind of average performances - which makes it hard to get the motivation to write a race report. I'm just not quite where I want to be.

But I did the NORBA in Vermont; XC was pretty average, got spanked for a 6th. STXC was actually pretty decent and got 2nd in a sprint after watching Trebon take a pretty impressive flyer for his first win. Highlight of Vermont was probably the golf game on the way up in Hartford and meeting Lou from Fender who gave me a sweet new guitar and goodies; I got a nice resonator guitar that has a pick-up which I got a cool mini-amp to plug in so I can really annoy my teammates.

After that was Mt. St. Anne World Cup. Again, a pretty average performance. Had a good start but had to make a couple pit stops and lost 30 spots which kind of takes the fire out of your belly. It was good to see my teammate Mat (Mathieu Toulouse) back at the races after a month and a half on the injured list. The bummer is that it wasn't even hot enough to go hit the ice cold waterfall; we actually got lucky with the weather on the east coast this year which actually made it kind of boring.
