So – a rough night at the DLV but I came home with a smile on my face.
5 Lap Scratch
The best thing I can say about this race is that I didn’t finish last.
I’m getting better and better at this race. I rode really smart until there were 5 riders left on the track. Two good riders opened a gap … baited me into a hole… I took the bait and just like that, I was gone. Eh… not upset about 5th, 10 riders sat down before me!
Forget the first 10 laps of this race – look at the last 20 and I just rode about the best race of the year. Unfortunately, I am .2 miles short on the event. I didn’t have my go-jo for the first 10 laps and boy did I suffer. It was truly miserable – but I some how rallied and finished strong. I was the only rider 1 lap down – but there were others down more than one! That made me feel pretty good….
I must love this silly sport. To try so hard – have a bad night and still smile so much because of the fun I had – it must be love.
There is always next week!
