We have one in the road racing forum, but not here. Figured I'd start one.
Last night was my third week of racing at Giordana. Flying lap first, which I'd never done. 19.0x. Slow, but not awful for a first time I guess. Next was elimination. They combined the D and women's fields. 7 of us total, three guys. I hide and stay up front third until there are three. I had to sprint once earlier but had it comfortably. Neutral lap we're all looking. I'm second wheel, first goes, I sit on, can't come around. Women's masters road champ comes flying around me and I get third.
Next was unknown distance. With three of us it was more like a match sprint. First attacks after a few laps, I let other guy tow me up. We watch and cruise some more. Bell rings, we're all up high. I fake an attack, they go and then sit up a bit. I attack for real in turn two, ride the sprinters line up high to force them around, win comfortably. First ever win, road, track or otherwise. Felt good.
Points next. 15 laps, points 5. Slow again, I find myself attacking by accident. Get half a lap, blow up, get caught just before the points. Stupidly sit up and roll off instead of chasing, since they'd probably sit up. Oh well. Disappointed in that one, but the rest was good. Looking forward to next week.
