Neslon local and NRG family member just came back from the Salty Dog with an awesome race result. Second place!! Here is Travis’s account of his Birthday weekend.
I am really exited to let you know I placed 2nd this weekend behind Corey Wallace at the 10th annual Salty Dog. Corey had a maechanical so I was holding 1st from lap 3 to 6 and then I had a crap session and Corey caught and passed me and he went on to completing 10 laps and made a new course record. I was glad to be done after 9 laps.
I was worried about my achilles but it didn’t flare up so I went hard.
Paddy destroyed his palms from riding ridged. The course gets rough on the descents but the guys is tough as nails and he ripped it up.
I wouldn’t have be as successful without my lovely lady passing me bottles. It was a hot day and I am grateful she hung out for six hours in the heat. Glad we the NRG tent!
I ate almost 2 shots per lap and I think I should have drank more Nuun might not have cramped. My new Ikon 3c exo tires were great. Thanks NRG.
