this jersey is from 1998. while 1997 was an incredible year for me, 1998 slowed way down. i wasn't going much worse on the bike, i just didn't get to as many races. i don't remember why, it was just a non-traveling kind of year. i got 4th place at the norba national in redwing, but other than that, i was home bound. so, i did a lot of the tc norba state series races. the series ended at st. joe state park in october. there were only 4 experts that day, which is horrible, but they were the usual suspects, myself, sam moore, and my buddy chris, and someone else who escapes me. it was cold and wet that day, but i got this jersey for the years (and the days) efforts. it's a very fetching jersey, another of which i have never pulled on.
a side note: i have never worn or raced with any state (or series) championship jersey. i find it impolite.
