“Focus” On Cody Barnes
Event: The John Penton
Location: Millfield OH
With rain Friday and high temps in the forecast I knew that it was going a tough race. I got off to a second place start and stayed there for most of the first lap learning the lines in the mud holes and hills. After the first lap was done the race was on. Swapping positions the whole race. Taking different lines to make passes and trying to ride mistake free while going fast was no easy task. With the race being so close all race It came down to the last lap. I was in the second place spot and knew I had to make something happen. With about 3 miles to go I took a different line up a hill and made the pass for the lead. With already battling for 3 hours a 3 mile sprint at the end was no easy task but I was able to put it together and come out with the XC3 win and 16th overall!!
Thank you for all the support!!
