3races so far, this season. Each race I've been third wheel coming out of the last turn, and have failed to cash in each time.
Today, Spring Fling Circuit race (cat4). I'm sitting in third going into the last turn, on a wheel of guy that looks strong.
It was 450 meters to the line from the turn, into a stiff headwind. By the time we're 75 meters past the turn, I know I'm in trouble, first guy pulls off, second guy is dying. With 375 meters into a headwind, I can't go and last. But with the slowing pace, all hell breaks lose coming around me on both sides, I don't get on a wheel, and just drag race to the line for 13th.
So, should I have been farther back? Picked a better wheel to camp out on? HTFU?
