"Sipes Words" GNCC Round 6 - Loretta Lynn's

Round six was at Loretta Lynn's, a place I've been going since I was 3 years old. I raced the Amateur Nationals there from '92 through '04. So I was really looking forward to going back to my old stomping grounds and getting a good result. KTM has been working hard on my bike to make it start better, and it really paid off with a top five start (finally!). But coming into the second corner, someone hit me from behind and spun me out, leaving me getting up dead last. I charged back to catch the pack and made some passes in the first few miles, some really fast trail sections with lots of rocks. I passed into 10th, and then got together with a guy and hit the ground again. It rained before our start and the trails were super slick and really tough to ride fast on, let alone pass people. I got back up and going again, but not long after, I got a freaking migraine! It just kept getting worse the more I pushed, and at one point I had to pull over to keep from puking. I stayed out there and finished the race, but it was hard to go very fast with my head hurting like that. It's in my top five hardest races I've ever done. I'm disappointed in the result, but seeing as I only rode one day the last two weeks and the migraine, I can't get discouraged. I know I have what it takes to win, and I'm going to prove it soon. The hard work is going to pay off. I want to thank my sponsors for sticking behind me.
