Mike was overtaken by Shane (from another team...the overall winning team) and I think that finished it off for him a bit.
Then the crit, as mentioned I rode B grade and it was very hard. We averaged about 35ish which sounds slow, but it was hard, I got dropped with Gary early as we stopped for a car, but the bunch had gone through, once they realised what happened they waited as it wasnt our fault, we probably could have kept going, but after Mandy was hit by a car yesterday and is now in the Alfred thanks to a drunk driver, she has crushed vertebrae, broken ankle and facial bone damage, I was a bit heistant about taking any cars on..... I got dropped at about the 10 minute mark, I think my cornering sucks, it is getting better but I am really bad at it and have to chase constantly and it wears you down, I rejoined the group, raced for another 10 minutes and was dropped again, I did rejoin, but didnt contest the sprint as I was two laps down. Our lap times were about the same as A grade and about 14 seconds quicker a lap than C grade,
So where am I at...apart from just about ready to chuck it all in, seriously I just cant quite hang on...I think I am improving. There were about 5 riders in B who just kept the p[ace on high, we would go into the fast corner at 47 sometimes, which was hard, but back off with the headwind, I did a couple of laps at the front, going very slow hoping someone would takeover.
As for diary entries. Nige got a second in a sprint and a third overall so I guess I have to let him have the diary entry today...well done Nige. This is a picture of him helping Ruby at the start of the race too....what a gentleman. Nige did ride well, too bad he wasnt hungover like last time.
