First win of the Season
Ok, it was just a prime. (Any body need some purple marble bartape?)
Did the Festival of Speed in Orlando. Beautiful day, Just about perferct, sunny , 70 degrees, but a fairly decent wind.
Felt pretty good all day. Road right around the top five all day. Took the prime when opportunity presented itself. Second in two other prime sprints that I didn't really commit to.
Last lap come out of the last turn in Fourth, where I thought I wanted to be. Into a quartering headwind, it was clear the 3 in front of me were slowing down. Sensing that the rest of the pack is soon to be flying by, I jump with about 300 meters to go. Not only was it too far into the headwind, my only path was to come around on the side into the wind. Got passed at about 50 meters to go and finished 6th.
You pay your money and you take your chances.
