10-lap scratch practice race
Here's a practice race that we had yesterday. Yes, I lost to a girl. haha. Posting this 1. For a fun watch of the brand new track in Erie. 2. Anything stick out from what you can see, errors in my riding?
And for the loss on that final sprint: I stopped pedaling after the 4th turn until I saw the girl in my peripheral vision. I went from 85% to 80%, when I should have gone from 90% to 100%. But then it was too late, so lesson learned was, never assume you're done until you're done. I didn't even know she was on my wheel. So I guess you could also say "Always be aware".
Another lesson is never underestimate the power in these girls. Especially when you are 38 and she is 23. ha ha.
