I'm beginning to think that cat 5 racers slow the F down on the last lap...i guess i should do next time.

Just read details on your blog... congrats on what sounds like a very smart race. Great result.

I, too, am taking lessons away from every race trying to learn as much as I can tactically... now if I could just do something about the engine!

Thanks guys. Thanks to CDR as well. Some credit must go to him since I employed some knowledge that I got from one of his videos.

+1... I watched his videos before my first crit. Really helped me visualize what I was in for. First race was a lot easier having "mentally" ridden days before.
