Wow, you've covered it all in one season. Amazing achievement by you and your team. I admire your drive with all that adversity. Most would have called it a season at the crash. Looking forward to seeing what's next for you. Christina are you planning to run at this years Runoffs? Keep pushing and don't let anything get in your way.

In reply to Tom1200 :

Thank you! I think once the whole field got through T1 clean I was reminded of the fact that the guys who show up to the Runoffs are some of the best of the best in club racing. We all raced with respect and cleanly despite the horrid conditions.
