Tonight’s racing sponsored by Team Chica Sexy. Nice job, guys. Fun night of racing, for sure.
I was on the road by 4pm today, and made it down to the track at 5:40pm. Not too bad. Light traffic in the usual spots, but nothing crazy. Eating in the car is crucial to stay awake. 3 categories tonight: p/1/2/3, 3/4, and then the 4/5’s.
Scratch: 20 laps. I don’t really remember what happen here. I think I was dropped and tried to catch back on, and might’ve made contact with the main group. The field was pretty small tonight. Didn’t really place, I’m pretty sure the lap counter read zero when Mario and I still had 1 to go. We just dipped out.
Tempo: 10 laps. I went off the front as the whistle blew, but got nicked at the line. Not a surprise there, I guess. I trailed behind the main group for a bit, and then the race ended.
Points: 30 laps, sprints every 5. So as the sprints started ticking down, the front group started surging ahead. I didn’t really have legs to hang, so I just kept the pace steady, slowly catching back up the group as the laps went down. It took me a while to catch back onto their wheels, but it eventually happened. Then the sprints came, and I lost contact once more. At least I wasn’t completely dropped.
Not sure if I left with any points or not, but I was happy to get out of the office, and stoked to see familiar faces. Awesome velodrome night.
