Cliff notes version: Cat 5 race, beginning of last lap I jumped hard and soloed the last 1:30 to roll in about 10 seconds ahead of the pack.
"overly verbose" version: We managed to get there with plenty of time before out race (about 2h), so we watched the juniors for a while, before getting a good 45 min warm up in. Dave and I both managed to get spots on the line and neither of us really fell out of the top 15 or so. About half way through the first lap, the usual cat 5 tactics set in and no one will go to the front and work, so I attack and spent the next 3 laps about 7-12 seconds off the front but not really gaining any time. I was trying to coerce someone to bridge up so that I would have someone to work with, but no dice. Finally realized no one was coming so I sat up and drifted back into the pack. Not a horrible field handling wise but not great either (what can you expect from a 5's field). Had a few guys bumping into my bars who swung out to far coming around the 180 degree turn in the back, but no crashes thankfully. I attacked a few more times, trying to get someone to go with me but no one felt like it I guess. 4 laps to go sign goes up and a guy in a capo jersey goes to the front and starts picking up the pace for the next 3 laps, but when he pulls off no one wanted to come to the front on the last lap. We go through the first turn, and going into the second I take a hard line on the inside and open a little gap, and then jumped hard. One guy latched on and I thought he was going to come around me right at the line, but going through the back turn, I took and inside line again, and I guess he didn't like it because when I looked back after the turn he was about 10 yards behind me again and had swung out pretty far the the right. Jump again and soloed the last 200 meters.
That's 10 races for me, but I'm going to wait until after San Dimas to upgrade.
I had my hands up for the last 50 meters or so and the official came over to me afterward and warned me that if I do it again I will be DQ'ed, despite that fact that the rule was removed over 2 years ago.
