The closed 1 mile Circuit in the beautiful
Richard, Landon and I drove thru very heavy fog for the 50+ 9:00 oooold guys race. I believe there were 13 of us at the start line and when it was over fast guy Tom Eaton took the group sprint going away. We were more than happy with our 4, 5, and 7th place finishes. Richard was a wild man out there today – he was all over the place – animating many fine moves.
After an hour break the three of us decided to race the 40+ - why not we drove over 100 miles and it is one of the best venues we race on all season. But, apparently we were too tired and in way over our heads. The main group shot of the line like a bullet and 6 of us were left with our pants down – never to make the bridge. All I can say is that we had a very good workout. I was disappointed that the three of us didn’t take the opportunity to works some tactics on the two guys we were riding with. Attack, counter attack, attack, count… We weren’t going to have much fun racing for 14th place, but we could have had some great fun working some team tactics.
Our very fast Kevin Temple and our good friend Karen S. were also at the races, but they are going to have to report on their events – I had to get home for work.
