Race report Deland Omnium Weekend
Road race - neutralized for 45 minutes which cost my position and then they cut the course short by 7 miles, settled for a pack finish.
TT - TT was canceled after several people had already done it. Judges realized their timing was completely bogus after an 11 year old kid set a 27mph pace for the 7 mile tt. Two friends and I did our own little TTT after being told the TT was canceled; vented some frustration on the road.
Crit - I was fifth wheel going into the final two laps, but I chose to abandon after a monkey locked his bars into mine going into a corner. In getting the two of us unhooked we zig-zagged across the field and he threw a foot into my rear wheel, throwing it out of true. At one point I honestly thought we were going down, but was comforted that I'd be landing on him, rather than visa-versa. After the race another guy in the pack who I'd been chatting with earlier told me the same monkey bounced into four other guys throughout the race. I did get the pleasure of seeing the monkey finish DFL, and when I mean DFL I mean he was scorched.
That is all.
