Me in the Bs
I was late getting to my race on Thursday
so I signed up for the next race which was the Bs.
The Bs are a much larger group. 30 racers I guess.
They were not really any faster overall but there were
moments of sustained big time speed. The corners were
way sloppier with lots of breaking du to the large
field 5 wide going into the corners.
I spent the first half of the race in the top 10 then found myself
near the back trying to find ways back up. On the
last lap I got very aggressive and overtook on the
inside approaching a corner. A guy shut me down and
drove me into the curb. I braked, stayed upright,
people behind gasped, then I sprinted and overtook the
guy on the inside approaching the last corner. Same
move again to bring me closer to the front. It
worked. I had done a good job to get up to about
10th. The sprint took off at the front and I was
behind some guys who speed up a bit but did not hammer
so my sprint was initially dogged. I got around the
blockers and let loose my doom face sprint and passed a
couple and a couple passed me on the outside. Overall
I think I was in the top 10 or there abouts so I am
very pleased with my first race in the Bs.
