    VanceMac tried using logic to get me to race on the track. I'm beyond that.
    Thanks.

    I'm sure. Especially with Ex there. They are running 3/4, 4/5, and Masters... and I know of ringers planning on showing up in each category. So I have no place to hide!

    Well, I won't be helping you do any bridging this time. A little off my game. Wolkoff and (especially) Weitze seem to be in very good form, so if they show up, you guys can have a party. I think Kevin Phillips might show... so fireworks for sure.

    I get the sense that LAVRA will add a Spring Series. And the Encino Summer Series was a big success, so suspect that will return.

    Out. Have a team meeting to attend and it also occurred to me that I might want to take my own training advice.

    Dang it... now my race report can't say "lost to a national champion". Which, so far, is the highlight of my racing career!

    I see where you are coming from. A years ago I did the Masters National RR and Crit. There were many guys with stars and bars and a few with WC stripes. Lost to them all! I did do a crit last spring where one of the competitors had WC stripes and thought "oh my!" We lapped the guy about 10 laps in.

    I saw the omnium results for the masters men on Saturday. Cari Higgins beat everyone and she was talking a little trash on her FB page.

    Win and you beat a girl. Lose and you get beat by a girl.

    So, indeed I AM able to write that I lost to a National Champion (and Olympian)! Spin control. The field was stacked. In addition to Higgins: Ironfly duo Phillips and Davy (National, State champs respectively, both in their 30's); two of my teammates (both State champ sprinters); and at least one other state champ.

    My top end power still felt a little bit off, so I wasn't super pleased with overall performance... but it was better than the zero omnium points might suggest.
    • 20 lap scratch had many little bursts, with nothing sticking. A few dropped off the pace, but I couldn't match the sprinters at the end. Finished 6th, out of the money (and 2nd for a prime, out of the money).
    • Miss-n-out I got ripped. About 4th lap, I was feeling pretty good, and came around to pip a couple at the line. Or so I (and others) thought. They called my number, c'est la vie.
    • 40 lap points, my teammate (200lb pure sprinter) gets a little gap on very first lap. He decides to run with it and tries to lap the field. I was in 2nd position when this happens, and the guy in front of me is prime candidate to pull him back. I was shocked when he almost immediately pulled up, leaving me, his teammate, in first position. I managed to block a bit before they came around, but no one ever really chased. He not only got the lap but hung on with the pack until the end. Very impressive. I managed to finish one place off the points in 3 of the 4 sprints.


    Today's theme: out of the money! But super fun, as always.

    The first Friday Night Racing of the year this week.

    A: Scratch 20/Miss-n-ou/Points 40
    B: Scratch 15/Snowball/Points 32
    C: Scratch 15/Points 32/Tempo

    I think they are running a Madison, as well.

    Probably because we do not have any brakes and cannot coast.
