I didn't lose. I actually beat the second place guy. Woohoo!!!!

Oh, I was in the cat 4/5 race. It hurt. I still hurt. I'll probably still hurt tomorrow.

That is all.

*link to race report tomorrow.

Oh, I was going to interpret "didn't lose" as "won," but I didn't want to go there in case I was wrong. I guess I missed the 2nd sentence there

CONGRATS!

Thank you. I actually added the second sentence after you replied. I figured it probably wasn't that clear and I didn't want anyone to misunderstand. Winning is very rare for me, I want to enjoy it for as long as possible.

Congratulations! Well done.

Lots of BF winners of late. Slowly replacing BF whiners, though I am still here.

Here are some pictures that the guy that I was sprinting against was nice enough to send me. I am in the green / purple.






Here is a picture that was taken during the race.


Obviously I still have some more weight to lose.

From standing on the cone, you threw the bike better than he did, which is why you won. But you did make up some ground on him and had a nice sprint.

Again, you looked good!

I think that it was the jersey that a) made you "look good" and b) caused you to win.

It would take a lot more than a jersey to make me look good.

I wanted to mention that Tym put on a perfect race. The corner marshalls were awesome and our motorcycle cop escort was perfect. He would go into the other lane to make sure that the oncoming traffic would either slow down or pull off. The prizes were even nice, I got a pair of Kenda Kaliente tires. I was very impressed.

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment. I know I threw the bike as hard as I could, I seem to be getting pretty good at that. When you don't have a sprint you have to figure something else out.
