We had the first session of our masters state champs last night including sprint qualifier... My training has been going well, but conditions were average with gusty winds. I was getting blown around in warm up on my 5 spoke front, so I changed to my 404 front.
Ended up doing 11.20... Exactly my target for this flying 200 challenge and a new state record for masters 2!
Nice, I guess you win! Or, reset for a new best time?
JMR- Really great result! congrats on the PR Ride.. hmmm i don't think there is a prize other than all our respect! oh- and you get to set a new goal!

i broke the state record (masters 2) for the kilo too... 1:09.18.
I wasn't that happy with my time, I was aiming for 1:07, but it was pretty windy and I had to go around the other rider (they were starting one rider each side of the track). My start wasn't great though.
New goal 200 time is 11.02"... See if I can hit that on the boards at Nationals in 3 weeks.
On fire JMR. Looking forward to watching you tear up the boards at the Nationals!
Awesome! What age group is Masters 2?
Those are great outdoor times.
Masters 2 is 35-39 (I'm first year of masters 2).
Dalai... Yeah, can't wait to get down to Melbourne and not have to deal with the wind we have had up here for the last couple of months!
First flying 200 since last summer. Managed a PR 12.34, but not yet at the calculated goal above (12.21). Some practice will certainly help... think I can get more aggressive on the approach. Just for reference: 96".
Nice Work VanceMac!
as far as I'm concerned- if it's your first 200 in a while at VSC- you could probably hit your goal on a second attempt if you were fully recovered. That track is so technique dependent, especially the wind-up, it's hard to get it right when you aren't current...
Woohoo!! got my goal 200m time in today's racing! almost can't believe it. 14.08!! and the track was cold at the time too (~21 C).
a PB in my 500m TT by 1.47s! (from a year ago - dont often do standing start timed tt's at local racing) SOOO stoked!
Great results Velocirapture!
the actual match sprint was today. due to the small size of the cat. i ride in, i was riding against a competitor with 1.06 of a second on me on 200m time. (and many years more race experience)
There was never going to be a snowballs hope in hell that i'd take the win, but damn i intended to make it as hard as i possibly could for my adversary . And i got the jump - regardless of being caught and passed within 50m. ha! now to get a monster kick to return the favor... its good to dream .
This weekend is the year's first sprint tournament. I'm excited and anxious to see where I'm at. Actually... more anxious than anything. Dat anxiety.
