Wow, that is cooking. Remember to raise those arms as you pass the finish line no matter what place. At the very least, it will be good practice for when you take first.

Well, I did a race last month.

I keep trying to get to Eldorado on a Tue night, but other rides keep getting in the way. It's possible that I might not race again until Devil's Punchbowl.

Not much on the details because I don't really remember them... I was towards the front for the first half of the race, was on the front and of the front a couple times. There was a headwinde after turn 1 which helped me a lot as the field slowed way down and I could move up whenever I felt like it.

I drifted towards the back about halfway through purposely to try and be better rested for the final lap. During the final sprint Vireo and I almost collided when I went by him and he tried to come over.

Oh, and Chuckles got 5th. I need to watch him more and sit on his wheel next time for the entire race...

I could have done the second one, but between my back bugging me and the 2+ hours wait between I decided to let one of the Juniors have my number since the race was full.

Hmmm, I guess I remembered a bit more...

I missed your debut, oops. I am going to have to get out there one day when you guys are racing.

George registered here last night, but I'll have to tell you from my perspective. Getting a phone call that starts with "There was a crash in the 4/5's and I went down" is NOT what you want to hear. I actually had to ask Jason if George was giving me the whole story or holding back details. He went down when there was a crash in front of him that spanned the width of the road and he had nowhere to go but up and over his bars. He has some road rash on his leg, elbow and shoulder, but what worries me more is that he was limping this morning.

Ouch!

I hope that he is okay!! I was racing with him in the 30+ 4/5 and luckily we had a pretty safe race. Was this in the regular 4/5 race? This is the reason I prefer Masters cat races...

So I take it he won't be able to make it out to Eldo??
