The other day I was talking to a current pro and he said something to the affect that there are only about 5 really strong guys in this area. I wonder who they are?
Anyway, I have two MABRA rider predictions:
1. Brian Butts is going to have a stellar season. From years of racing at the an elite level, it would be hard not to recognize this, but he has all the qualities I think it takes to make a good domestic pro. He took time off, and has been building and at this point is consistently riding strong for the duration of every ride I have done with him.
2. Josh Frick (if he races much), like Brian, is also going to have a great year. When I first started riding, I heard much about him, but I never saw anything in races. As of late though, every time I have ridden with him, I am starting to see what they were talking about.
I hope both my predictions are right. Brian because he is my teammate. If Josh did well again, his teammates would probably follow suit and MABRA racing in the 1,2 field would be a whole lot more interesting and more fun.
