    Yeah!!! I was not DFL today!

    Finished mid pack in the C race. But hey, that was great fun and better than the DFL I took in my first race. I even got to race against a couple of guys and two very fast teenagers. Turns out that warming up makes a difference.

    At one point, I tied to spit a hooger and was aware that it didn't really go anywhere. My friend pointed out to me that it was still on my chin after the race.

    On a technical note, I was suprised how much shifting I did. I actually shifted a lot between my large and small rings.

    Man, I love this game.

    Looks like you are smiling - work harder, suffer more. Makes the beer and waffles taste better.

    LOL, I promise I spent very little time smiling...most of my race looked like this...

    The perpelexing thing is that I swear I passed that lady holding the baby but there she is at the finish line ? Hmmmm

    I was DFL yesterday. The course I did was soooo hard it was happy to just finish the hour's work. Plenty of guys called it quits.

    I'd be ecstatic with 9th out of 25. My only top ten finish came in a race with only 10 riders. I got 9th because one guy had a mechanical. I was thrilled this week because I didn't get lapped.

    LOL, I hear you Andy.
    I was really worried going in that I was going to get the tar beat out of me.
    BTW, take a close look at that barrier in my last post....it is parallel to the course and requires a 90 degree off camber turn while running.
    I ended up layed out on the ground in front of that on one lap

    The more I look at this, it looks like 6th of 13 (which I will still take). Seems the field had a few categories in it...so my category had 13, and I was 6th in it...but 9th overall of 25. I HAVE DREAMED OF BEING MID PACK MY WHOLE LIFE!!!!! LOL
