Rider in front of me went down on the first lap. Despite getting a free lap my heart rate was spiked from that point forward. Had to work my way through the field the entire race. With about 5 laps to go I finally made it to the front. Someone solo'd off the front for 4 laps and we reeled him back in on the last lap, but then another rider went off the front with a half lap to go. At this point my inner Luke Chronister came out (haha) and I got on the front and kept the break in my reach while making sure everyone behind me was "having fun". Came into the last corner and emptied the tank; The leader went from the middle lane all the way to the right but I was able to get around him with about 50m to go and took the win.
