About working with teammate… With the ruts, and how rough it was and how hard it was we definitely wanted to be up at the front. I hadn’t planned on leading but no one else just went that hard.”
On Faia… I figured I did a good hard start he’d be right on my wheel. I didn’t have to look I just know that he’s there.
On getting third place… We [Tim Faia] race together week in, week out. We always just hammer, duke it out. And like I said, I couldn’t be happier than if I had won it myself. It’s just as good as it gets.”
On the course… The super hard, frozen ruts, the rocks, nothing was unfamiliar. I felt great, rode great, I just didn’t have the super top-end legs.”
