After winning UROC Geoff Roes joked that I hadn’t interviewed him after a victory in a while. In fact, it hadn’t happened since Western States last year. Although he’s won plenty of races since then, this one had to be a gratifying win. Roes also shared that it was satisfying in that he bounced back from 5 or 6 rough spells on the way to the win. In the following interview, Geoff gives us an in-depth look at his race.
