The first section saw Zarczynski, Price and Bayles all fail to complete the tallest Waco Kwikform Scaffold Step, before state hero, Middleton made it up in a stunning ride. With a 5-point lead Middleton had some room to relax into section 2. Zarczynski and Bayles both had a couple of safe rides on the very slippery concrete, before Price failed to complete the section, and Kyle made an uncharacteristic mistake and slipped off one of the lower pipes and touched the ground.
This reduced Middleton‰Ûªs lead to only one point going into the notorious Barrier section. Zarczynski, slipped off for 5 points failing to complete and then both Price and Bayles rode beautifully to clean the Barriers consecutively.
Middleton then failed to complete the first major turn dropping to 12 points and back to fourth place. This moved Bayles into the lead on only 7 points. Section four all riders failed to complete and with Middleton and Zarczynski both having big crashes, in the Pipes.
After the tyres and races, the final results were Bayles first (14 points), Price second (16 points), Middleton third on count back (17 Points) and Kevin Zarczynski (17 Points).
‰ÛÏI was super stoked with the result and my riding‰Û
