yes! i was more nervous before Ian Hilt’s race then i’ve ever been for one of mine, and was waiting feverishly to hear the result.
i’ve been coaching Ian for 5 weeks or so, and after a bit of a blow-out in his first event just 2 weeks into the CPCS training program his spirits were low, but we got to work and honed him close to absolute perfection – well, kinda!
Ian, a 4th Cat rider from Iowa, not only had never won a race before but had never even been on the podium, if you can believe that.
so congrats to you Ian, great stuff.
